Our perspective

This community is ideal for Calgary families and seniors looking for something a little different, something a little more ideally relaxed. The location just outside of Calgary in Rocky View County, is an idyllic location that offers quiet, country living close to the city. In addition, this is close to the highway, making it easily accessible for family members from throughout the area.

Prince of Peace lives up to its name with its tranquil countryside setting, in a community close enough to the city to make visits easy for family from the city. Inside, there are delicious chef-prepared meals and features that appeal to a variety of tastes, including a tuck shop, woodworking shop, chapel and more. 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. A physician is also on call, and nurses are on staff around the clock. This community offers improved living for newly moved seniors, with many contemporary features like walk-in showers and other accessibility.

Leah King, senior

What a lovely place. The staff are all so kind and full of compassion and knowledge! The nurses go above and beyond and the whole place is clean and sanitary (a priority for my family)! The food is also amazing and I really appreciate all the activities and fun events the staff plan. It really brightens the patient's days and helps the days not blend in to one another. I think it's vital to have something to look forward to and socialization for quality of life and to ward off dementia! Thank you Prince of Peace! You've given me peace of mind and joy!

R. Hall, family member

The staff vigilantly guard against infection from every angle. My mom is quite appreciative of your efforts, as well as all the accommodations you provide for her.

Caroline Fairbrother, family member

My Mum, who is 97, has lived at Prince of Peace Manor for three years. She has some dementia and she loves living there. She says the food is very good and the staff are professional, kind, helpful and not intrusive. I have found the standard of care to be excellent and staff go the extra mile to ensure that residents are healthy and safe. My Mum and I are happy we found the Prince of Peace Manor.

Emma Thorn, resident

I love the big windows! There are great views of the mountains and prairies. The walking paths are well maintained which makes it easy to enjoy the duck ponds and green space in the community.

Tammy Vestrum, family member

My Mom, Betty Klassen… was able to receive Palliative Care at her home, Prince of Peace, after having a stroke. Our family experienced significant emotional and physical support through the last 5 days that we spent at our Mom's bedside.

In those difficult days, we witnessed the deep connection that existed between Mom and her caregivers. They treated her and us with a great deal of respect and care. They anticipated care needs, they showed up during the most difficult days, with such kindness and compassion for us all. Mom died peacefully and gracefully here in her home, surrounded by her children and her Prince of Peace family. The impact that this had upon our family will be with us forever.
[It’s a] commendable organization and excellent frontline staff [who] have provided kind and compassionate care throughout the past year.

Transitioning into care was stressful for both our mother, who has dementia, and our family. This was compounded by COVID. The staff at all levels from admin, to personal care workers have been kind, patient, and available through many tearful conversations.

I [loved] watching Mom share a joke with the staff, their investment in relationship with her [was] evident and welcome.

The staff are vigilant and observant - anticipating her needs, and responding to concerns and changes that we note as well.

Other things that make it a great home include a varied menu, and nutritious meals and snacks. It is always clean and smelling fresh. There is lots of sunlight...These things combine to create a welcoming atmosphere.

On Saturday Jan 2, 2021 at approximately 4 in the afternoon my Mother who has resided at Prince of Peace since July 2020, had her television service go dark. Being an avid football fan, this was not going to do given the NCAA &NFL playoffs were on the horizon. Thinking quickly the Front Desk/Kitchen employee took it upon herself to become an electronics aficionado. She recognized the problem was a broken Shaw cable receiver and located a box containing extra cable receivers installing it so the TV was back operating within a very short time. This employees initiative is indicative of what our experience has been with Prince of Peace Manor. We take comfort knowing that our Mom's needs/care are always the primary focus of the staff and they do it with enthusiasm and a smile.

C Laro, family member

Both my wife's parents and her aunt live there and are very happy. Very satisfied with all the support, kitchen, administrative, and health care staff. Would definitely recommend Prince of Peace to anyone seeking an assisted living/retirement community.

Donald Bennett , resident

I moved into the Manor 5 months ago and am originally from Newfoundland. At first there was apprehension but it quickly dissipated when I joined the Manor family... I'd recommend this type of living to anyone needing senior accommodation.

Joyce Kinloch, resident

I came to Prince of Peace Manor in November 2017 and if I had known how great it is to be here I would have moved in sooner. It is wonderful to be able to socialize... One just needs to open the Suite door and someone is there and smiles at you. Everyone is so friendly and helpful and the meals are fantastic.

Brenda, family member

This facility is so lovely and clean, and the
rural setting is fantastic. But it's the people here who really make it
that extra awesome! ... My mom has been here for a year [and they]
made her feel special.

Vivian, family member

My Dad
has resided here for 3 yrs. The personal and medical care is
superb ... . There is always something going on and the recreation
staff and other volunteers are truly dedicated. You definitely feel the
love here.
