    stories

    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.
