Alberta is an ideal province in which to enjoy the active adult lifestyle.

Tips on choosing an Alberta active adult community

Alberta’s Ministry of Seniors (AMS) is responsible for retirement residence legislation and runs campaigns that aim to improve the well-being of the province’s seniors. Prior to picking one of Alberta’s active adult living communities, you could contact a representative from the Ministry to learn more about its reputation.

You can also consult the Alberta Seniors & Community Housing Association (ASCHA), a non-profit organization that represents the wide array of senior homes in the province. ASCHA membership is voluntary, so members often hold themselves to higher standards than some other homes. Before selecting an active adult living home in Alberta, you might wish to consider whether it is a member of ASCHA.
