How we see Lake Bonavista Village - Verve Senior Living
This is the choice for you if you want to live in a truly unique community. The variety of the housing and the layout of the grounds in a hub helps to create a true "village" feel. For all that, there is a distinct effort put forth by staff to make this place home, answering the unique needs of everyone who comes to live here.
This is a uniquely planned seniors' community. While this is ideal for families in the southeast area of Calgary, families and seniors from throughout the city owe it to themselves to check out the uniqueness here. It's a community that includes studios and suites as well as thirteen cottage bungalows. This is another stellar example of forward-thinking in the design and creation of contemporary retirement communities.
There are other notably modern aspects to life at this community including an emergency response system, easy access showers, and executive-chef-prepared meals available daily. But features mean nothing if there isn’t that feeling of vibrancy, something more than just material living. Lake Bonavista Village offers this in spades, augmenting its excellent facilities with a long list of life-enhancing features that includes exercise classes, and planned outings to offsite venues. Adding to the uniqueness of this community you'll find art classes, stimulating presentations offsite and on, and a full slate of other daily activities ranging from book clubs to a walking club to a ukulele circle.
Assisted living is also an important part of the care here, with round-the-clock personal aide workers, as well as health care professionals on staff.
How Lake Bonavista Village - Verve Senior Living sees itself
Lake Bonavista Village Retirement Residence is situated in the established and elegant community of Lake Bonavista amongst the serenity of old-growth trees and open landscapes. We offer a balance of autonomous living and community involvement through outstanding amenities, exquisite dining options, and diverse recreational and social events. Meander through our cul-de-sac community of thirteen cottages settled on our eight acres of tended gardens, putting green and swimming pool—and discover the art of aging in an engaging and impressive setting. Welcome to transformative retirement living.
One of the other biggest differences between our location and others would be our land footprint. Having 8 beautiful acres of space with gardens, putting greens, and pathways allows residents to enjoy the outdoors, year-round. Every suite has its own balcony as well so they can enjoy their own private outdoor space. We also have a unique group of residents who are very friendly, welcoming, and sociable. A big intergenerational draw is our warm swimming pool.
We do everything we can to help residents settle and adjust to life at Lake Bonavista Village. Our welcome ambassadors come and greet new residents to offer support, and connections and share their own personal experiences. The first two days of staying here, we offer to escort the individual to the dining room for meals so they are not walking in alone. Every member of our management team will go and greet them and answer any questions or concerns and talk about the services offered in the department.
Residents are always surprised that retirement living gives the opportunity to maintain and gain independence. They no longer have to worry about mundane daily tasks and start to enjoy their own time for personal growth. Being part of a larger peer community provides an easy opportunity to cultivate new friendships. Lake Bonavista Village soon becomes home and ceases to be "just a place to live."
