Our perspective

Boardwalk Properties are cultivating a reputation for excellence with this and other projects in Alberta. Feel confident that they'll continue to grow this into a superb place to live. Award winning renovations elsewhere in the city have turned buildings into luxurious destinations that have blown away tenants’ expectations.

Boardwalk Retirement Community entered a new phase of life in 2018. Renovations there led to it winning the 2018 Calgary Residential Rental Association’s (CRRA) Award for 2018 Best Renovation of the Year. This bodes well for 55-plus Calgarians looking for apartments with flair.

Standout features of this building include the fireplace lounge, where people gather to chat or check out what’s on the big screen. There are also spectacular views of northern Calgary from the many apartments with private balconies. The support staff here is professional and driven. People are enthusiastic about the recreation and social activities available.

When it was that time of life change for our parents; we visited Boardwalk, and since that original date with Roland- my parents have embraced the change with no hesitation. Roland had given and still gives our whole family the thoughtfulness as he did that original day! We are so blessed that this is the choice that was made ….. We look forward to a long journey here!

Our mother continues to have a wonderful experience at Boardwalk Retirement Community in Calgary since moving here several years ago. She has made many friends and there is genuinely a sense of community. We feel great that she has contemporaries who provide a sense of belonging. Aside from the other residents, I cannot say enough about the staff. Everyone from the dining room team to the cleaning team know her name and always greet her warmly. She has expressed many times how great they are. We have also built a great relationship with the Assistant Manager who truly is dedicated to the well-being of the residents. There is nothing too big or small that he cannot handle. Aside from the above, the community is in a great location and offers a wide variety of activities for the residents.

About six months ago I had to move fairly quickly and was looking for a new home. I was delighted when, after visiting, touring the building, and sharing a meal with other residents, I was offered an opportunity to live here. Fitting within my budget, the team at BRC has been wonderful. From the meals to the light housekeeping, and all of the other amenities, I am grateful. I have not missed my old place since moving to this, my new and hopefully forever home.

Marcy, family member

Although my parents have not moved in yet, the team at Boardwalk’s Calgary Retirement Community have gone above and beyond to provide the information they needed to make a decision that felt right for them. From our first inquiry, to helping us prepare for their move in August 2023, Sushil Singh’s excellent customer service has been amazing and greatly appreciated.

Kay Hildebrand, resident

I started looking for a retirement complex in June [and] found Boardwalk Retirement Center's prices are very reasonable, they had some available units and my small dog is welcome. My two daughters and I went for a tour with Tony. He was very friendly, answered all our questions and invited us to stay for lunch on the house. We were very impressed with the menu and the quality of the food. It took awhile to make a decision and Tony is now on holidays. But no problem, because Sushil Singh took over very smoothly. I have gone back and forth changing move in dates and he handled it with understanding and patience. The general attitude of the staff is very friendly, helpful and caring. Some of the tenants we spoke to expressed happy contentment. The park like area next to the building is lovely. I will be a tenant soon and I look forward to it with happiness.

Denis Beaudoin, senior

Very polite and courteous in every sense. Sushil was also very professional and informative.

Lori Bishop, family member

I moved into the Boardwalk retirement apartment almost one month ago and have found the customer service outstanding right from the get go.
Tony was my first point of contact and is super friendly, easy to talk to and very informative about this community.
Rollan shows a calm and friendly persona every day no matter how busy he can get with multiple tasks and requests he tackles at the same time.
Sushil is always ready to greet you with a big smile and is very helpful and quick to answer any questions and concerns that I have had.
Whatever concerns or questions, all three of these wonderful gentlemen go above and beyond to help and provide the information required, always smiling, always helpful.
Thank you for making this move and transition to the Boardwalk retirement community as smooth as possible 🙏

Greg Bates, family member

We recently started looking for a new home for my Dad. We found Boardwalk retirement and I connected with Sushil Singh. We were struck by his professional and friendly manner as we toured the building and apartment and Shushil answered all of our questions in a professional and friendly and courteous manner. The building itself was extremely clean and had great social and dining facilities and there seems to be lots of activities to keep my Dad busy. Sushil walked us through the application process and got us through it quickly and easily and we're looking forward to my Dad living there. I'd definitely recommend Sushil and Boardwalk to anyone that needs to find Senior living.

Laraine Shepherd, resident

Boardwalk is pretty close to perfect. I have only been here a little less than two months, I can say I made the right choice. I created a cozy apartment, everything I need is here, the people are friendly, the kitchen is exceptional, and the servers in the dining room are the best bunch you could ask for. I am 82 and this will be my forever home, best of all I have my Buddy here with me😻

John De Hoop, resident

I have only been a year at Boardwalk. This is a great place to live and it's friendly also, I would recommend Boardwalk to all my friends. Keep up the great work.

Mahdi Zareian, resident

Their agents are very kind and helpful. I rented a house in this building recently from my country, that was a hard job. But the office helped us so much. They show the house on Whatsapp to us. Also, [they] spent a lot of time helping us and answer our questions on Whatsapp. I want to say thank you to her and the boardwalk for having this office. Also, cost of the rent of this building is rational (based on our comparisons), and the location of the building is helpful for everyone. Besides, the building is clean and peaceful.

Donna Simon, family member

My mom's fridge died late on Sunday afternoon and I called the maintenance department; my call was answered right away, a maintenance person came to her apartment within 2 hours, the fridge could not be fixed so a new one was found for her and installed in her apartment within an hour. Amazing, professional, and caring service.

Norm G., resident

Friendly people. Obliging staff. Beautiful grounds and many activities. Five Calgary transit buses stop in front of our building. Abundance of places to walk including the U of C and Brentwood village with stores, services and restaurants. These are among the many attractions we have enjoyed during our five years at Boardwalk Retirement Community. We recommend it.

Ally, resident

After visiting quite a few retirement homes in northwest Calgary, Boardwalk Retirement Community was my choice. My first impression was that the residents were happy to be there, and made me feel quite comfortable. Even though it is independent living, the residents and staff create a supportive family atmosphere. I have now lived here for 4 1/2 years [as of 2021 --ed.] and still feel the same way.

Colleen C., resident

I checked out three Senior Homes then I looked into living at Boardwalk Retirement Community Independent Living. In comparison BRC met all my requirements. After living here for seven years I can say "I wouldn't want to live any where else". I love my apartment with it's lovely view of Brentwood and Nose Hill Park. The staff and residents are friendly and helpful, and the Recreational activities are very enjoyable.

Ingrid Cunningham, family member

My mother-in-law lived there for more than 10 years. She made life-long friends there, many of whom are still there, enjoying their homes at Boardwalk. There are always things we can find room for improvement, but I found over the years the staff on the whole are very accommodating to the residents. I visited my mother-in-law numerous times a week so could see a fair bit of what went on.
