Whitehorn Village combines an established community with programs and staff that excel at making this place happy and lively. Seniors here profess that this is a “nice place to be,” every day. The amenities list here makes this a truly vibrant building, where you can be as active and busy as you want to be.


Whitehorn Village is the kind of place we would call an oasis of good living. The building itself is a wonderfully clean, well-laid out location with a welcoming lobby, and featuring a beauty salon, an onsite bistro and bar, a games room, fitness studio, movie theatre, general store, and much more. With so much onsite, there are many different ways you can join in with people your own age here to make good times together.

Staff here, from administrators to care aides, say caring for elders is in their blood, and this is very apparent in the way they treat seniors, seen in the subtlest of gestures. There’s a clearly demonstrated attitude of service and the life enrichment programs particularly notable. Seniors who move here find that it’s also very inviting for family members and friends, who feel welcome to visit and enjoy the environment.

With a full continuum of care here, including assisted living and memory care, Whitehorn Village is welcoming to couples who have varying needs, and it’s an ideal place for those with memory loss or other onset of dementia. This community goes out of its way to help people transition out of a home that no longer suits them, into a lifestyle just right for the person you are now. You’ll enjoy everything from gardening, to interesting outings, to a regular happy hour, to occasional live music, to simple, small moments with others—or in the comfort of your suite. Dining here is said to be delicious, prepared by red seal chefs. Whitehorn Village gives you a lot to live for every day.

With the COVID pandemic raging out of control, my family had to make the difficult decision to put a family member in the memory care unit of Whitehorn Village Retirement Village. Over the months we have been able to see how careful the staff is with keeping COVID out of their building. The staff are also very caring and compassionate right from the moment you walk through the door. They maintain a family atmosphere here as much as possible and value family input.

The staff are also very caring and compassionate right from the moment you walk through the door. They maintain a family atmosphere here as much as possible and value family input. We can't say enough about the wonderful personal service workers. They are so patient and proactive about helping their residents and giving them dignity to live their final years. I can't say enough about them except "thank you."

Our Mom is happy and safe at Whitehorn Village. In September 2018 my sister and I had to find a suitable retirement home for Mom.

Our Mom is happy and safe at Whitehorn Village. In September 2018 my sister and I had to find a suitable retirement home for Mom. We visited five retirement facilities in the City of Calgary and truly … Whitethorn Village stood out from all the rest as being well established and moreover, a happy place. It felt good there. We were able to settle Mom into her new home with light hearts.

Now, in retrospect, the decision shines through as a Godsend. Here’s what has been clearly evident during this Covid crisis - the management at Whitehorn Village care deeply for their staff and as a result the staff care deeply for the residents. There were zero patient infections throughout Covid due to superior oversight and a vigilant staff. Witnessing that Mom was in kind and caring hands helped ease our minds during this time. We are so grateful to the team at Whitehorn Village for all they have done for the quality of life for all of the residents in their care. Our gratitude is what prompts us to highly recommend Whitehorn Village to any families who are looking for the very best care there is.
