Reviews of Garrison Green by United Active Living

Gain exclusive insight into life at Garrison Green by United Active Living. Comfort Life’s reviews give you exclusive insider information.

Our perspective

Garrison Green is a move into a new way of life for seniors, one that renews their love of living. Seniors here truly are active—and enjoy being so—because there are so many different things for them to do. You see seniors here who are obviously enjoying the life they live together. Family members and residents are glowing in their praise of the vibrant life here. It's a place that brings out the best in people.

Active living truly is a communal experience at Garrison Green. People discover new passions here thanks to the many in-house programs. That includes art classes, fitness programs, and in-house classes and presentations by Mount Royal University. Garrison Green is positively vibrant with music, including performances by the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, Honens, and the Calgary Jazz Orchestra.

It’s a community where you want to join in, no matter what your abilities. People here enjoy learning something new every day. You’ll also see people who just love making new friends or deepening current friendships in the lounges and shared spaces here. The United Minds program integrates those who are living in memory care. This is not only beneficial for those with dementia but everyone here becomes part of an integrated community and can spread love to those dealing with dementia. As one senior here says, “There’s just a wonderful feeling of community here.” Staff here are a big part of that community; they administer care with genuine care and love.

On top of all of that—or perhaps a deeper aspect of all that—dining here is restaurant quality. Does life get any better than eating well together with good people? We’re also very impressed with the size of the suites at Garrison Green. These are actually spacious apartments that people quickly come to love as their new home.

All told it's an example of how private ownership foments unique programming that enriches people's lives. It’s the true state of the art in senior living, and senior living is an art, as seen in Garrison Green. Many of the people you hear from here will tell you that moving in was an excellent decision and has been a wonderful experience.

Donna Hamer, senior

Phenomenal place to have a connection with aging adults & have conversations about the words "old" and "creativity"
Awesome inspirational place to visit. Awesome inspirational people to visit too!

Laurie Dolph, family member

Exceptional community! My mom and dad have lived there since 2013. The staff treats them with such kindness. It's as if my parents were their parents. Thank you very much, Garrison Green! I am so fond of this place that I volunteer there, showing movies and leading sing-a-longs with my dad.
