COVID-19 Information

Life During Pandemic at Origin at Spring Creek

Origin resident Henry Sagan remembers seeing
headlines about the pandemic on television last
year and thinking that the virus would be something
temporary, like the seasonal flu. But as the infection
numbers in Canada grew and grew, his mind was
changed.
“Boy oh boy,” he says, recalling those early days,
“it’s not going to be over anytime soon.”
Henry can’t wait to be able to, as he says, go
where he wants, when he wants, but until then,
he likes being at Origin and believes it’s a safe
place to be due to the closely evolving safety
measures put in place by Origin staff, guided by the
recommendations of Alberta Health.

Mountain Town Lifestyle & Staff Support

“I really appreciate the opportunity to walk in nature
and look out the door and see the mountains, says
another resident Rick Andruchuk, who also enjoys
the scenic drives offered by the staff.
His wife Allison agrees.
“The fact that we live at Origin, surrounded by
nature, is a daily sense of joy,” she says, “we are
not alone or lonely.”
Other residents, including Walter and Jean
Worthingham, say the staff at Origin have been
crucial to keeping them safe and spirited during this
challenging time.
“Wearing masks all the time, supplying food and
snacks to the residents,” says Walter. “And the
surprising things they do for you! About once a week
they’ll come to the door with some sort of surprise,
it’s just amazing. Ice cream Sundays, hot chocolate,
we even had staff show up at our door with a pastry
for donut day.”

COVID-19 Safety Measures, Communication & Vaccinations

Residents and loved ones are kept up to date on
the COVID-19 situation at Origin through email
communication and announcements throughout the
residence. They were also encouraged to visit with
family outdoors in the comfort of the heated family
meeting place at Origin’s fabulous ‘back yard’.
“We’ve been extremely impressed by the openness
of the communication and the frequency of it,”
agrees Giselle Joy, and her daughter, Calgary
resident Jennifer Pound.
The most exciting announcements at Origin this year
were the vaccinations, residents and staff receiving
their second vaccination by February.

Insider reviews & perspectives

Comfort Life Review

stories

The town of Canmore, Alberta is home to world class retirement living. Origin at Spring Creek is one of the most spectacularly unique retirement communities in the country. The location, couched in the heart of the Rockies, one hour from Calgary, fosters a unique combination of vitality and serenity. There’s majesty right outside, and plentiful comfort and companionship inside.

This community offers ownership options (also relatively unique), including leasing and purchasing. The latter is a best-of-both-worlds scenario, letting you retain real estate investment in a caring retirement village. Suites combine independence with availability of any support needed. Memory care is also available in Morningstar House. It all works together in a thriving community of people who share values and interests, but are also varied and uniquely vibrant.
