Our Perspective

How we see Trinity Lodge - Verve Senior Living

This community is exceptionally warm and friendly. You see people throughout this community who seem to have found a renewed joy in living. There's a lightness to life at Trinity Lodge. Staff demonstrate a personal connection to the needs of seniors. Trinity includes a focus on health and wellness that extends beyond the physical, to the emotional and spiritual. This is especially seen in the availability of in-house social features ranging from art classes to inclusive chapel services and much more.

This well-established community in central southwest Calgary exudes comfort. You might feel like you're going back to a warm, familiar time in these traditional surroundings. In fact, people here are encouraged to keep select aspects of their own past with them when they take treasured keepsakes from home during their move. Even your fluffy friends are welcome, too.

Inside you'll find suites with large picture windows to let the warmth and light in. All the conveniences of communal living are here, creating a bustle of activity. Friends greet friends at any of the wellness centre, the in-house Bistro or in a quiet corner of the library. Ladies enjoy weekly visits to the beauty salon. And the general store is just one more popular meeting spot. Beyond that, there's so much more!
