Rediscover Life at The Lodge at Valley Ridge…Newly renovated -just for you!
We would like to share that our community continues to remain well and safe. We implemented safety protocols in early March. This includes enhanced sanitizing, taking daily temperatures, wearing Personal Protective Equipment, and ensuring employees are committed to only working at The Lodge.
Our Healthcare & Wellness Team is focused on keeping our residents healthy with great success. The team is dedicated and committed to providing the best care possible.
Our Dining Services Team is busy preparing daily culinary delights for our residents. As well as purchasing essentials and delivering weekly care packages.
During these unprecedented times life is different however, our residents and team members remain positive and resilient. Our team members have been enjoying spending time visiting our residents while maintaining, social distance.
Our Life Enrichment maintain their ability to provide daily activities and events above the guidelines to keep everyone, safe. One event that was enjoyed by many, was our themed Caribbean Happy Hour. We encouraged staff and residents to dress up. The team with a decorated and musical mobile cart, went door to door delivering feature cocktails and appetizers! We also deliver essentials and guilty pleasures on a makeshift mobile cart for delivering, puzzles, books, planting, and crafting accessories.
We are here and available to support you. If you or anyone you know is struggling with shopping, for essentials or preparing a meal. Contact Angela at 403-286-4414 EXT. 104
For your convenience, we are still allowing Move-ins and provide Respite. (some conditions may apply.)
We welcome the opportunity to show you our newly renovated community and introduce you to our caring staff and friendly residents.
Until we can meet again, you can book your Virtual Tour, and live a life filled with Verve.
Stay safe, stay strong…
The Team at Valley Ridge
Central-west Calgary seniors (and family members) looking for a change for the better might find much more than they bargained for in the Lodge at Valley Ridge. Take all the best things from your current home and move them into a spacious, welcoming community of happy peers. People here live a full life every day, one perfectly matched to the person they are at this stage.
This community offers exceptional luxury in a community that is also, in fact, very relaxed. There are many fun activities on the weekly schedule to get people involved and cement friendships. During the winter months, there are fun indoor activities (the annual St. Paddy's Day dress-up is a hoot!) and lots of outdoor activities in summer, set against the backdrop of the gorgeous exterior greenspace. You can also take part in coffee time, ladies hour, men’s luncheon, happy hour, etc. Staff here make it a goal to focus on the uniqueness of each community member, and that comes out in interactions you see throughout the community.Read 11 more reviews

Ruth grew up in a small outport community in eastern Canada and feels like she has “come home” to the prairie community of The Lodge at Valley Ridge where the vitality of the residents and getting to know your neighbour is so important. It is that neighbour helping neighbour attitude that makes The Lodge at Valley Ridge Retirement Residence the friendly and welcoming community that it is.
