Our Perspective

How we see Country Cottage

Country Cottage was an existing retirement home purchased by Optima Senior Living in 2019. We look forward to seeing what this company will do here, given their refined focus on creating intimate, caring communities. What you’ll get in Country Cottage, then, is a staff that “loves to come to work every day” in the people-oriented environment Optima Living inculcates.

When you move into an Optima Living community, there’s an established manner of welcoming newcomers. It’s part of their larger focus on making seniors’ quality of life the very best possible. In our experience with their other communities, we see how their resident-centered approach focuses on respect and dignity, and meeting you as you are. For example, communities connect with local churches to make sure that senior residents are especially welcome there.

For all that intimacy and friendliness, this is like a cruise ship on land, including chef-prepared meals and a wide array of features and amenities. As with many people, you'll probably wish you had made the move earlier.

What do you do differently or uniquely well?

It’s the country feel of our seniors’ home and our welcoming atmosphere—found both in our residence and outside on our manicured grounds—that makes us stand out. Small and cozy, we’re known for our family-like feel and tight-knit seniors’ community, especially as we only have 48 suites. Though we boast convenient services like access to a wide range of engaging activities, housekeeping, linen service and delicious meal options, it’s our staff who really make the home special. There’s nothing our caring and passionate team values more than making a difference in our residents’ lives and helping them to lead the relaxing and fulfilling retirement lifestyle they deserve.

Marla Bosse, family member

"What a great start for Mom! I hate to call them staff....they have made Mom so comfortable during her first weeks there, that they feel like family. Thoughtful, caring, and professional....thank you to Country Cottage for all you do each day! "

Marilyn Hooper, family member

"An overdue thank you to everyone at CC who cared for my Mom over the past 10 years. I was in and out of CC almost on a daily basis and I felt very well supported by all the staff who assisted me in caring for Mom and helping me make sure she was healthy and happy. As Mom’s needs increased, the care needed to be increased. The Director of Care and the RNs/LPNs all stepped up to suggest different ways to support Mom's new complications. There were times when we needed to pivot quickly :) C..."

      COVID-19 Information

      Maya Angelou once said, “Try to be a rainbow in someone else’s cloud.” It feels like it is a rather apt reminder as we continue to navigate the pandemic. While we remember to wash our hands, protect ourselves, and respect others, there are also ways in which we can focus on bringing hope and laughter to our community. Let us live with hope and zest for life even while enduring the challenges set before us. We must continue to stay focused on best practises, express gratitude to the caregivers and frontline workers, and above all continue to live in hope and look for ways to “be a rainbow in someone else’s cloud.”

      Alberta remains under a state of public health emergency. New Public Health restrictions came into effect starting September 16th to reduce the spread and protect our health care system. Businesses participating in the Restrictions Exemption Program will require patrons or clients to be vaccinated or to show a recent negative test result. Recently, British Columbia announced that it will mandate that all healthcare workers be vaccinated for COVID-19 by October 31st, 2021. British Columbia also announced a Vaccination Passport System, and starting October 12th, all visitors to long-term care and assisted-living facilities will need to show proof they have received at least one dose.
