Located in south Calgary adjacent to the largest urban park in Canada, United’s Fish Creek community is made up of two buildings connected by a walkway and a professionally designed courtyard. Our research shows there is a direct connection between well-planned spaces and sense of well-being. This is the cornerstone of our Fish Creek community. Our buildings are designed to focus on independence and lifelong learning, encouraging good nutrition, physical activity and building strong social connections. You can do what you want, when you want and come and go as you please.
If you are interested specifically in a lifestyle that includes assisted living in Calgary, click on the Assisted Living & Memory Care photo below. Or if you’re interested in an entirely care-free, independent lifestyle, click on the Independent Living photo below.
The first of its kind in Canada, the two buildings at Fish Creek are masterfully designed as an integrative community to promote independence and well-being. After all, you don’t get to be 80 or 90 without experiencing some wear and tear on your body, but that doesn’t mean you have to give up your independence, nor the freedom to choose how you want to live. The Fish Creek community also has a variety of beautifully designed suites in all shapes and sizes to support any physical needs you may have. Our United Cares program and team of professionals provide holistic, personalized care designed so you can continue your independent lifestyle.
We’ve designed the two buildings in our Fish Creek community based on what we know older adults want and need in a community – independence, peace of mind and a strong social network.
