MGH Ground Breaking Ceremony

Posted by Barb Noad on November 4th, 2017 | No Comments


We are proud to announce the official ground breaking of our newest project, Multi-Generational Housing & Community Centre (MGH) on November 3, 2017. Alberta Premier Rachel Notley, City of Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi and other special guests from the Ismaili community were in attendance for the ground breaking event.

MGH will provide 120 assisted living beds in North Calgary and surrounding area. Conveniently located near Deerfoot and Stoney Trail, MGH will offer residents a safe and secure home-like atmosphere.

Construction on the project is progressing well with the completion of the second floor. We have also started work in the basement, building the mechanical and electrical rooms to support the building systems. We are forecasting to have the third floor slab construction complete before the holidays.


 

Province supports seniors, families with new long-term care and dementia beds

Posted by Barb Noad on September 9th, 2016 | No Comments


Construction is starting on a new facility that will serve Calgary families with triple the number of long-term care and dementia beds than originally planned.

“Last year, we did a thorough review of all proposed Affordable Supportive Living Initiative (ASLI) projects, and worked with partners like AgeCare to make changes where they were needed to meet the needs of Albertans. Today, we are seeing those results with more than 256 of this facility’s units being built at a higher level of care than under the former government’s plan, for the same investment.”
– Brandy Payne, Associate Minister of Health

The original ASLI agreement for the AgeCare SkyPointe community was for 64 long-term care beds, 32 supportive living 4 dementia beds and 256 Supportive Living 4 beds, a lower level of care. After the government review, the agreement was amended to 128 long-term care beds and 224 Supportive Living 4 Dementia beds. AgeCare is upgrading these spaces for the same grant amount of $10.56 million.

The AgeCare SkyPointe community will serve seniors and other Albertans with daily needs and access to round-the-clock nursing care.

“We are excited to partner with the Alberta government and Alberta Health Services to bring these much needed care beds to Calgary. AgeCare has been designing and building innovative seniors communities for over a decade. Our goal is to provide the best quality of life experience for each individual who chooses to make AgeCare SkyPointe his or her home.”
– Dr. Hasmukh Patel, CEO of AgeCare

The Government of Alberta has earmarked $365 million as part of its commitment to build 2,000 long-term care and dementia spaces in the next four years.
