AgeCare Creates More Affordable Options for Seniors Through its Retirement Living Subsidy Program

AgeCare has further demonstrated its commitment to local seniors by introducing an internally funded subsidy program, separate from any financial supports available to seniors through the Alberta Government.

“The AgeCare Affordable Retirement Living Program is being offered to low to moderate-income seniors who may require subsidized rates in order to live in AgeCare,” says Dale Forbes, President of AgeCare. “We are proud to be able to provide a substantial reduction of up to $350 off our already competitive rates for our retirement living suites, particularly in this challenging economic time.”

“AgeCare is founded on the belief that all seniors are entitled to a rich quality of life, and regardless of economic conditions this holds true,” says Dr. Hasmukh Patel, Chief Executive Officer of AgeCare. “Without sacrificing the quality of programs and services offered at our communities that have become the AgeCare difference, the company is leveraging its position as an industry leader to support Albertans who are presently struggling to find affordable retirement housing.”

Since opening in 1998, AgeCare  has become an integral part of the community, providing resident-centered programs and services that continuously support the needs of the community. “Prior to Christmas, we were very pleased to inform all of our independent retirement living residents at AgeCare Columbia that we were lowering their monthly rental rates. Now, with the introduction of the AgeCare funded subsidy program, we are further addressing the financial pressures facing many seniors and their loved ones,” says Forbes.
