Our newest venture! A new way to provide an affordable and safe way for our seniors to age-in-place.
A new model for single family seniors that emulates aspects of single family living. 14 Assisted & 3 transitional self-contained units. The right balance of independence and support.
A place to live, visit, and enjoy life.
Elderhouse is designed to encourage socializing and visiting with comfortable, bright, and accessible gathering areas for residents and visitors.
Values and Principles
Dignity. Respect. Belonging. These are the primary principles of Elderhouse. We asked what's important. "Don't take away our choices", they said. We listened.
Fits on any single family street.
Elderhouse changes the face of seniors' assisted living. It respects the right and desire of seniors to remain as active and functional members of their home community.
The Elderhouse vision grew from conversations with a community that respects and values their seniors and conversations with seniors who what to be decision makers, not dependents.
"I am a senior living in Inglewood House. I have volunteered with the Jack Long Foundation since the start and at the Inglewood Community Association since 1967. We need this facility as soon as possible as we are getting too old and fragile for the existing facilities."
Lorna supported herself working for "temp" agencies, without benefits. She feels fortunate with a subsidized senior's apartment.
She is not sure where she can go when she needs more support.
"...I also want to point out the value of this project as a prototype that could create a new future of seniors across the country."

City of Calgary Councillor
"This model will address these issues by establishing a housing option that enables seniors to age-in-place, allowing them to maintain a level of independence and integration into their community, while proving supportive services. An added benefit of this project will be the opportunity to replicate this approach in other communities in Calgary..."
- Ralph Hubele,
Senior Manager, Health and Housing
"This innovative model of housing will offer a unique approach to the delivery of community-based supportive living in Inglewood. This project fits in perfectly with the concept of Aging in the Right Place."
