About Garrison Green by United Active Living

At United Active Living, we pride ourselves on being a place where older adults experience new firsts every day. We actively build and foster community, tailoring programs and services to your interests to cultivate authentic connections among neighbours and with our friendly and talented team. There’s no such thing as a standard experience at United - we invest in delivering unique experiences based on what you want to see and do - both in our community and beyond. From certified kinesiologists to professionally trained artists, we promote active living and creative expression which means our monthly program calendar is second-to-none. We also know it's important for residents to be active in their community, which is why we build meaningful experiences with organizations like the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, Mount Royal University, Honens, Calgary Jazz Orchestra and many more. United delivers a leading approach to memory care - United Minds – which integrates individuals living with dementia or cognitive impairment into our community and focuses on the unique abilities and interests of each person rather than limitations. This means an environment where couples and individuals thrive. We complement offerings with larger-than-average suites with your choice of kitchen or kitchenette and convenient amenities like underground parking, a la carte dining, and in-suite laundry. United Active Living is committed to transforming the experience of aging.

Insider reviews & perspectives

Comfort Life Review

stories

Active living truly is a communal experience at Garrison Green. People discover new passions here thanks to the many in-house programs. That includes art classes, fitness programs, and in-house classes and presentations by Mount Royal University. There’s also a lot of music here, including performances by the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, Honens, and the Calgary Jazz Orchestra. Garrison Green is positively vibrant.

It’s a community where you want to join in, no matter what your abilities. We heard from people who tell us they still enjoy learning something new every day, and they can do that here. You’ll also see people who just love making new friends and deepening their current friendships in the lounges and shared spaces here.

Garrison Green is inclusive in its vibrancy. Their United Minds program integrates those who are living in memory care. This is not only beneficial for those with dementia but also for everyone living here who becomes part of an integrated community and can spread love to those dealing with dementia. As one senior here tells us, “There’s just a wonderful feeling of community here.” Staff here are a big part of that community, and they administer care with genuine care and love.

On top of all of that—or perhaps a deeper aspect of all that—dining here is restaurant quality food. Does life get any better than eating well together with good people? We’re also very impressed with the size of the suites at Garrison Green. These are actually spacious apartments that people quickly come to love as their new home.

This is an example of how private ownership foments unique programming that enriches the lives of people. It’s the true state of the art in senior living, and creating great senior living is an art, as seen in Garrison Green. Many of the people you hear from here will tell you that moving in was an excellent decision and has been a wonderful experience.
