What level of care is provided?
We are equipped to provide LongTerm Care. Some of our elders require minimal assistance with daily activities and others require more. We are staffed with Registered Nurses and Health Care Aids and have all the equipment necessary to deal with both personal and health needs. We also work closely with Alberta Health Services and Home care to provide additional help so that our residents can stay at Extended Care for as long as possible.
Are you subsidized?
Our residences are private health care facilities and are not subsidized. However, the rental and accommodation fees are equal to those provided in the government institutions. Costs for healthcare are tax deductible.
Are the rooms furnished?
All the common areas are furnished with beautiful and comfortable home furnishings. Residents are invited to bring their own bedroom furniture. However, we do also provide modest furnishings in the event that furniture is needed. The bedrooms are spacious enough for a twin bed, a dresser and or desk and a sitting chair.
Is laundry included?
All laundry and linens care is included in the service fee. However, dry cleaning is not included.
What are the visiting hours?
There aren’t any. We do not limit friends and families to formal visiting hours. Visitors may come and go whenever they like. We do ask that families show consideration for other residents, however, if evening visits are frequent. We also ask that you sign in and out when you come.
Can residents have their own telephone?
Each bedroom is equipped with a telephone, cable and internet line so they can have their own phone, television and computer. Cable and internet charges are
included in the cost. Phone service should be through the provider of your choice.
Can family take elders out?
Absolutely! Residents are encouraged to go on outings as much as possible. Please ensure the staff know of the estimated return time so that they can send along medications if needed.
