This lovely community is ideal for a variety of people. The easy accessibility to the golf course is ideal for those who want to get out on the links several times a week. There's even a ski hill nearby.
The community also offers a variety of care to accommodate couples with varying levels of need. Couples where one spouse requires assistance with some activities of daily living, while the other spouse remains independent, will be able to remain together under one roof.
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.
Excellent staff and a beautiful home!—Manny, family member
My mom was originally nervous about moving into a retirement home but now she says we should have done this sooner. She's very happy here, and I feel great knowing she is safe and sound. It feels so relaxed here, and the people seem genuinely happy, both staff and residents.—Faith, family member
I’ve been here since October and before the pandemic I really enjoyed the entertainment on Wednesdays and that we had so many different activities to choose from. I like the fact that you don’t have to go to the lab to get your blood check! That’s a huge plus.The staff is very cheerful and happy all the time (during this time its much needed).—Donna Reid, resident
Activities offered in our facility cater to every type of person living here, and everyone can find themselves doing something purposeful during the day. I believe that the life enrichment department and the activities that they offer really makes a difference in the well-being of the residents and is what makes this place into a fun and enjoyable place to live. I have lived here for almost 10 years, and it is the staying active and the well-cooked meals by the kitchen that keeps me recommending—Marian Sayers, resident

There [really] is something about in-person [exercise] classes that makes a difference to the effectiveness. Exercising, of course, keeps me mobile and lets me enjoy my walks more without any aches and pains, but the part that keeps me going to, and recommending the classes is the social aspect. I have met people in this class that are motivated to keep their aging as graceful as possible, as well I have made friends who are willing to go on walks with me and keep my company because it can get lonely walking by yourself. Also, the people participating in the exercise classes are also the people who attend all other activities provided by The Lodge. This creates a great community and friendship among all the attending residents.
