United in Community
Connecting with others and making new friends is a cornerstone of our philosophy. Research shows that older adults who are the most socially engaged remain healthy and active. Community develops when everyone has choice, when residents are active, learning new things and participating in community events.
Residents support each other.
It’s why we call ourselves a community.
The result is a growing sense of self-esteem and confidence for all residents, which leads to more involvement in community activities. Residents become interested in getting out more, learning new things and building new friendships.
We partner with Mount Royal University and St. Mary’s University to expand learning and creative opportunities. It’s not uncommon to find our residents enjoying a concert at the philharmonic, or a show at Theatre Calgary or participating in an art class in the mountains.
To help you get there, staff members are assigned to you as welcome coordinators, similar to a buddy system. They help you get used to your new surroundings, introduce you to other residents, and get you started on new activities. Often other residents will reach out to make you feel welcome.
Our communities feel like home, with the added benefit of an involved community of older adults.
We have the same goals – to enjoy an active, happy, healthy lifestyle.
