Sundre Seniors' Supportive Living Facility
Local residents had been lobbying for 10 years to have a seniors' complex that would allow them to age in place, instead of moving to the city as their need for care increased. The 104-unit facility does just that, with three housing options available on one site. Eighteen independent units, also known as life-lease housing, are specifically designed for independent seniors who want the flexibility and freedom to come and go as they please. Forty-six lodge living rooms have replaced the Foothills Lodge facility, as well as an additional 40 full-time care units that offer a caring community to those needing round-the-clock care and those living with dementia. The building, located on an eightacre property, was designed for expansion should growth in the future justify enlarging the facility.
