United Active Living

Calgary's creative, active, independent living community

United's communities are unique in Canada. They offer unlimited possibilities and choice.

“When you walk in, you feel the spirit of the place. There’s a good feeling here,” says resident Joyce Doolittle, who wasn’t sure what she was going to do with her time after she retired. “You have a chance to develop aspects of yourself that you couldn’t before because you have more time.”

What Makes United Active Living Communities Unique?

Our active living approach addresses the physical, social, emotional, and spiritual needs of our residents. Our focus is on health, creativity and community. Our partnerships with such groups as the Calgary Philharmonic and Mount Royal University expose residents to professional artists, musicians and university faculty for extended learning opportunities, all designed to keep the mind and body active.

What are the buildings and amenities like?

We design our buildings around the programs we offer, rather than the other way around. Each building is masterfully designed as an integrative community to promote independence and well-being. Each offers a variety of beautifully designed suites in a variety of sizes to support any physical needs you may have. We’ve designed our communities based on what we know older adults want and need in a community – independence, peace of mind and a strong social network.

What types of programs are available?

Five-star meals support a wide range of activities tailored to match your interests and abilities. You don’t have to give up anything when you move to one of our communities. You can choose what you want to do, what and when you want to eat, and with whom you want to socialize. United programs such as core stability, yoga, dance and walking help to promote physical and psychological health. We fit our schedules around your interests, not the other way around. This is your home. You wouldn’t want it any other way.

What if I need assistance or memory care?

We support you in the privacy of your suite. The services we offer are flexible and can be adapted to suit your changing needs. Our team of professionals partner with you to customize your personal care services, on your terms. United’s revolutionary United Minds program supports growth and well-being to ensure a positive life experience. We believe in inclusion not seclusion. You are never separated from the rest of the community. By including you in the decisions that affect you, we give you peace of mind, the confidence to make decisions and more choice.

Am I good match for a United community?

The best way to determine that is to take a tour and talk with one of our experts. We find that it's better to make a relocation decision while you are healthy and active. Once you are in one of our independent suites, you can choose extra health care when and if you need it. We are completely flexible, and encourage you to age well with us. Give us a call!
