The Lodge at Valley Ridge

11479 Valley Ridge Dr NW, Calgary, Alberta, T3B 5V5

Central-west Calgary seniors (and family members) looking for a change for the better might find much more than they bargained for in the Lodge at Valley Ridge. Take all the best things from your current home and move them into a spacious, welcoming community of happy peers. People here live a full life every day, one perfectly matched to the person they are at this stage.

This community offers exceptional luxury in a community that is also, in fact, very relaxed. There are many fun activities on the weekly schedule to get people involved and cement friendships. During the winter months, there are fun indoor activities (the annual St. Paddy's Day dress-up is a hoot!) and lots of outdoor activities in summer, set against the backdrop of the gorgeous exterior greenspace. You can also take part in coffee time, ladies hour, men’s luncheon, happy hour, etc. Staff here make it a goal to focus on the uniqueness of each community member, and that comes out in interactions you see throughout the community.

Prince of Peace lives up to its name by offering a uniquely tranquil countryside setting, in a community close enough to the city to make day trips and family visits easy.

Outside, residents enjoy a quiet stroll with views of the open prairie on one side and the spectacular Rockies on the other.

Care staff here is focused on offering "person-centered" care. Seniors are encouraged to improve their own health and wellness through the excellent food on the menu combined with local fitness facilities.

Lake Bonavista Village

11800 Lake Fraser Drive S.E., Calgary, Alberta, T2J 7G8

This is a uniquely planned seniors' community. While this is ideal for families in the southeast area of Calgary, families and seniors from throughout the city owe it to themselves to check out the uniqueness here. It's a community that includes studios and suites as well as thirteen cottage bungalows. This is another stellar example of forward-thinking in the design and creation of contemporary retirement communities.

There are other notably modern aspects to life at this community including an emergency response system, easy access showers, and executive-chef-prepared meals available daily. But features mean nothing if there isn’t that feeling of vibrancy, something more than just material living. Lake Bonavista Village offers this in spades, augmenting its excellent facilities with a long list of life-enhancing features that includes exercise classes, and planned outings to offsite venues. Adding to the uniqueness of this community you'll find art classes, stimulating presentations offsite and on, and a full slate of other daily activities ranging from book clubs to a walking club to a ukulele circle.

Assisted living is also an important part of the care here, with round-the-clock personal aide workers, as well as health care professionals on staff.

This well-established community in central southwest Calgary exudes comfort. You might feel like you're going back to a warm, familiar time in these traditional surroundings. In fact, people here are encouraged to keep select aspects of their own past with them when they take treasured keepsakes from home during their move. Even your fluffy friends are welcome, too.

Inside you'll find suites with large picture windows to let the warmth and light in. All the conveniences of communal living are here, creating a bustle of activity. Friends greet friends at any of the wellness centre, the in-house Bistro or in a quiet corner of the library. Ladies enjoy weekly visits to the beauty salon.

Newmarket and area seniors find a wonderful, fresh new home in the Roxborough. It's thrilling to find a seniors' community of this quality! The building is immaculately kept throughout, from the exterior to the diverse suites you find throughout the community.

Seniors and family members agree that the Roxborough renews people's enjoyment of life. That begins with the refreshment of moving into such a well-kept clean place, where staff are especially gifted at taking a personal interest in each individual. Within the community, there's an opportunity to eat with a variety of other residents and deepen friendships every day. The social life here is varied and scheduled at a relaxed pace throughout the day. Some of the residents' favourite activities include excursions, cocktail hour, the gardening club and religious services in house. It's a revelation to many people how great life in a community of peers can be. Both seniors and their families find astonishment that life can become new again, no matter what stage you find yourself at.
