The Rocky View Foundation Offers Affordable Seniors' Housing
Founded in 1964, the Rocky View Foundation provides affordable housing for seniors in the Rocky View region. The Foundation operates two seniors' lodges (supportive living), and three manors (independent living - apartments). Rocky View Foundation partnering municipalities are Airdrie, Beiseker, Cochrane, Crossfield, Irricana, and Rocky View County.
Supportive Living: Big Hill Lodge, Cochrane and Rocky View Lodge, Crossfield
Our lodges offer so much for people still seeking independent living but needing "a bit of help".
Leave the housework and cooking behind and experience the pleasure of good company in secure surroundings. You may come and go as you please, or entertain your family and friends in your room, the lounges or activity areas. All meals and snacks are provided to you in the dining room. Our staff take care of weekly housekeeping and linens. Accommodation fee is calculated based on income, to a maximum of $1,680/month.
We encourage active, engaged living. To support this, we offer exercise classes, music, crafts, Wii games, pool tournaments, shuffleboard, cards and other games, movie nights, computer access, and a library. If outings appeal to you, join our Activity Coordinators on a country drive or a variety of off-site activities. Our buses make regular trips to cultural events, shopping, and restaurants.
Leaving your home is a big decision, but know that our lodges provide warm and caring environments that offer peace of mind about security issues and the worries associated with living alone. Our homes are staffed 24-hours/day to assist with emergencies.
Our residents enjoy the sunshine on the patios during the summer, and the warmth of a cozy fireplace during the winter months. If you are interested in making a Rocky View Foundation lodge your next home, contact us for information on applying.
