Your health and wellness matter to us too. That’s why we offer many valuable services and easy access to visiting professionals. These include massage therapy, a visiting podiatrist, visiting optometrist, visiting physician, lab services and a pharmacy.
Homecare services for specific care needs can also be accessed through Alberta Health Services or third-party providers. To qualify, an AHS case manager completes an assessment, authorizes, and schedules care for an individual at their retirement residence. Additional care and services (scheduled or unscheduled) may be available and provided at an additional fee.
Our retirement residence also uniquely offers a dedicated Memory Living neighbourhood with high staff-to-resident ratios for seniors living with dementia. We offer a unique, person-centred approach to memory care that allows our trained and caring staff to form strong social connections with residents to build trust and familiarity, helping them to live each day in contentment and comfort. We also have a dedicated Memory Living Manager and Social Worker to support the families of our residents living with dementia. Memory care services may include medication management, assistance with activities of daily living, access to an on-site nurse and visiting physician, cueing assistance, and escort to meals and activities, and much more.
We’re here to help you or a loved one understand your options and which service level will be the right fit for you. Our Health & Wellness Manager will also conduct an assessment before you move in to ensure you’re receiving the right level of care for your unique needs and preferences.
