The Boundary Trails Health Centre is one of the main healthcare facilities in southern Manitoba. Nearby is Katie’s Cottage — a home away from home that provides families with a welcoming place to stay while their loved ones are in the hospital. Guests can enjoy the cottage’s outdoor spaces to find peace, refresh, or take a break away from the hospital. The cottage also provides games, teddy bears, blankets, and movies for guests to enjoy.
Katie’s Cottage is a service provided by Katie Cares: A charity started by a local woman named Kaitlyn, who as a young girl, was diagnosed with cancer. Today, Katie Cares is devoted to making the lives of people relying on hospitals a little bit easier. The cottage’s outdoor renovation project will improve the beauty of the space and make it easier for the community to use.
