Golden Age

Make the young ones jealous by enjoying company in our Golden Age Lounge with comfortable seating, quiet atmosphere, cable TV, and plenty of card games or Mah Jong going daily.

Not one for playing games? Well, we also have guest speakers, different clinics such as flu shots or hearing screenings. There are also a number of programs specific for seniors, in the pool, in the gym, and special field trips around Calgary and the mountains!
