Our Perspective

How we see Prince of Peace

This community is ideal for Calgary families and seniors looking for something a little different, something a little more ideally relaxed. The location just outside of Calgary in Rocky View County, is an idyllic location that offers quiet, country living close to the city. In addition, this is close to the Trans-Canada, making it easily accessible for family members from throughout the area.

Prince of Peace lives up to its name by offering a uniquely tranquil countryside setting, in a community close enough to the city to make day trips and family visits easy. Inside, there are delicious chef-prepared meals and features that appeal to a variety of tastes, including a tuck shop, woodworking shop, chapel and more. Outside, residents enjoy a quiet stroll with views of the open prairie on one side and the spectacular Rockies on the other.

Care staff here is focused on offering "person-centered" care. Seniors are encouraged to improve their own health and wellness through the excellent food on the menu combined with local fitness facilities. A physician is also on call, and nurses are on staff around the clock. This community offers improved living for newly moved seniors. with many updated facilities that include contemporary features like walk-in showers (among many other features).

For families dealing with Alzheimer's Disease and other forms of dementia, Prince of Peace's supportive living care offers specialized support in an environment uniquely prepared to deal with the effects of dementia.

What supports do you offer residents as they adjust to life there?

Moving can be very overwhelming for seniors. To help residents adjust to life at Prince of Peace Manor & Harbour we offer many personalized supports to ease their fears. Department managers provide each new resident with a resident orientation, we walk step by step through the key information about our building and operations. Alongside our orientation, each resident receives a resident handbook to refer to. While a resident is learning our building, we provide one-on-one portering services to and from meals. Additionally, we host a new resident tea where long-standing residents and new residents can mingle and start budding friendships.

What might residents find surprising about your community?

Moving to an assisted living community can be a big step. Many seniors see it as a step backward in life, they think they are giving up their independence and will no longer be able to do the things they enjoy doing. Many residents are surprised that it is the complete opposite once they move to Prince of Peace. They now spend more time being social, being active, and often stepping outside their comfort zone by trying something new.

What five facts about your community should people know?

1. We are nestled into the idyllic country setting with stunning prairie and mountain views with the convivence of city amenities a short 5 min drive away.
2. Seniors can age in place, making us a community where you can put down roots
