Live with Us

By providing choice, we help seniors maintain their independence.

This includes the choice to stay in one’s community, choice of housing, and choice of living arrangement. At our seniors residences, we provide residents with a choice of recreational activities, daily menu options and even how their bed is made. If you would like to explore housing options, please call us: 403-652-8600 or email for more information at: Seniors Supportive Living Residences
