Supportive Care and retirement living
Supportive living in Lethbridge
AgeCare Columbia is conveniently located close to amenities and to downtown Lethbridge, and our certified Recreation Therapist is skilled at developing great activities and events to attend. AgeCare Columbia is a retirement living setting where residents become friends…the very definition of community.
The unique design of the community provides a “campus of care” that enables aging in place as your needs change. Your level of care may be accommodated by moving you within the community from our Retirement Living neighbourhood to our Supportive Living neighbourhood.
AgeCare Columbia is a Supportive Living (SL3) community that provides seniors with a home where they can enjoy privacy and independence with the comfort of knowing health and personal care supports are on site, 24 hours a day, when you need them.
At AgeCare Columbia we believe in offering you as many retirement living options as possible for worry-free living in a friendly, caring, safe and secure environment. The unique design of the community lends itself to an intimate and welcoming retirement lifestyle.

A Registered Nurse Care Leader oversees all elements of resident care. They lead an interdisciplinary team that include Registered Nurses (RNs), Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs), Heath Care Aides (HCAs), Occupational Therapists (OTs), Physio Therapists (PTs), Recreational Therapists (RTs), and Social Workers.

In SL3 Health Care Aides (HCAs) are on-site 24 hours a day to provide support, scheduled personal care, and medication assistance. The HCAs report to a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) or a Registered Nurse (RN), who are on-site periodically, but not all the time.
