Reviews of Verve Aspen Woods

Gain exclusive insight into life at Verve Aspen Woods. Comfort Life’s reviews give you exclusive insider information.

Our perspective

Calgary seniors living alone or in a house they’ve outgrown will find that Aspen Woods makes life better as soon as they move in. It’s desirable living that reminds people of a luxury hotel. You’ll like being surrounded by active seniors, bountiful amenities and activities, and caring staff.

One of the things that impresses us the most is the rich activity schedule that includes everything from Bingo to movie nights to guided meditation to Zumba to wine and cheese socials to shopping outings. The list of upscale amenities includes concierge service, an art studio, indoor health club with saltwater pool, a hobby garden, a salon, movie theatre, an all-day café, a bistro-pub, and fine dining. People live well here!

Care staff here are very professional and work efficiently; there’s a unique combination of attentiveness and unobtrusiveness. Meals are chef-prepared, with a varying menu, and fare that uses fresh ingredients. Everything about Aspen Woods is service-oriented, treating residents like staff would treat their own family. The setting — truly premium senior living — brings out the best in people.

If you are looking for a senior retirement community for yourself or a loved one, look no further than Verve Aspen Woods. It is a community that has been exceptional in every aspect and continues to surprise and delight our father who downsized from the family home in September 2022. The features of the building are above and beyond, with everything you would desire and then some! The building itself is well situated in a residential community with access from all quadrants of the city, via the new Stoney Trail extension, which makes travel to and from smooth and easy. The underground parking is especially welcome in both the heat of summer and cold of winter and is even available for use while visiting.

The curb appeal is warm and welcoming, with the grounds immaculately kept no matter the season. The summer patios are gorgeous with south-facing exposure and resplendent with flower pots. There are ample walking paths for residents and visitors alike on the property and through the local community. The housekeeping and maintenance teams take great pride in ensuring a clean and well-maintained building, whether in the shared common spaces or the private suites.

The food is exceptional - in taste, quality and variety. Kudos to the kitchen team! We love the extra touches like the special coffee machine and takeout items from the Pub. If Dad is out and about for the day, he can easily pick up lunch-to-go to keep him fueled for the day. The dining room staff are excellent in their attitudes and service delivery. They know every resident by name and have even come to know all members of our family when we visit. The concierge team and care teams are fully engaged with the residents and anticipate needs and manage a busy "house" from command central ensuring residents and visits alike are cared for and have a good experience. The calendar of events is creative and overflowing with opportunities to be as engaged as one would desire - truly something for everyone. Beautiful, well-appointed facilities and services aside, every point of contact with every staff member is a moment of truth. An opportunity to showcase their big hearts, care and interest in the residents, their families and visiting guests. From the first moment of connection with the Lifestyle Managers who toured us around the facility, and helped us select the right suite, to the signing of the lease agreement with the General Manager, to the logistics of move-in, monthly billing with the Office Manager, to the onboarding by the Director of Wellness and other logistics, this is a team of awesome humans who are real pros! We simply can't say enough great things about Verve Aspen Woods.

Making the transition to a seniors community can be fraught with worries and concerns for both the senior and their family. The team at Verve allayed those with fears and helped ease my dad into a new lifestyle that has been supportive and enjoyable for him while giving us peace of mind and joy in witnessing this new chapter of his life, with new friends and activities.

Perfect Respite. I recently spent 1 week post-orthopaedic surgery at Aspen Woods and recommend it highly. I am under 60 yrs old. The staff were kind, responsive & accommodating. I felt welcomed. Thank you for gluten free meals and ice machine refills at 4 AM. I did not require much care overall by the staff but that is available as needed. It was helpful having my daily vitals taken by a nurse. The large suite I had was contemporary enough with a hospital bed and it was kept barrier free and super clean.

My friend I love has been a resident at Aspen Woods Calgary for just over six months. I visit her almost every day for a couple of hours. It's easy to access the building from the main streets. The grounds are well kept and there is both surface parking and parkade parking for the visitors. The building layout is very good and reminds me of the high-end casinos in Las Vegas in its quality.

The Front Desk Concierge... makes it a very welcome experience. From the Concierge to the front-line workers, [service] is of a high standard. The staff is dedicated to providing care with efficiency and compassion. The housekeeping and upkeep is satisfactory. The residents are provide good care and assistance as needed by each individual. This no doubt is a reflection of the good management. The Facility projects a cheerful environment with very positive vibes... While it is the Staff at large who perform, I give credit to the Management for running such a good establishment and the staff for executing it all.
