Insider reviews & perspectives

Comfort Life Review

stories

Set foot in Swan Evergreen Village and you’ll immediately be struck by how brightly lit and inviting the lobby itself is. That’s merely an introduction to what is a caring community here. Staff are friendly and courteous, and you’ll see them greet residents by name and it’s apparent that they have developed a caring rapport with residents.

The generous list of amenities in the Village includes an in-house movie theatre, a music room, a library, a roomy hair salon, and an active games room often brimming with laughter. Residents who dive into the activity schedule especially enjoy life here. There’s a lot to do, every day. The cuisine here is a daily pleasure, prepared by a gourmet chef. Suites are spacious yet comfy, but many people choose to spend most of their time out in the community, with so much to do.

Swan Evergreen Village is a community that encourages people’s positive side, to feel good, surrounded by beautiful decor and a generous-minded, loving community. The availability of higher levels of care like assisted living and memory care makes it amenable for people to start off enjoying all the pleasures of independent living while still able to age in place. Alberta Health Services is on site, and the community is able to pull in resources to help those who need it.

General Manager's Message
Cathy Russell

It is with great pleasure and privilege that we get to serve our aging citizens in a meaningful and personal way!  As an Origin employee, it is in our DNA to provide the best service options available and be the best versions of ourselves that we can possibly be.   My leadership team of professionals collectively take great pride in being empowered to act quickly and respond appropriately to any needs that may develop for a resident.  We also love getting to know you, and we participate whenever we can.   We aren’t a Monday to Friday business, our staff are available around the clock to address your needs.  As a GM, I too, am hands on, working with my colleagues, always reviewing and perfecting our services and delivering on our promise of true wellness.  We are committed to listening to our residents so that we may take a collaborative approach to the lifestyle choices they want, not what we think they might like.  We are always adapting and engaging and getting to know our residents on a very personal level!
