Have you reached the point in your life that you are not quite able to do the housecleaning, cooking, etc. in your own home? Then the best place you could possibly find in Lethbridge is Garden View Lodge.  As long-term residents of this facility we feel that it cannot be bettered.

It is convenient and close to two drug stores, clothing outlets and other various stores at Park Place Mall which is just across the mall parking lot. Most stores you would use and banks are all within walking distance.

The staff could not be more accommodating; it would be impossible. Night or day they are within reach to help if you should need it. The facility is always kept so clean and the food is always top quality. As for activities – there is a pool table and a shuffleboard table, and several areas for doing puzzles as well as Wii games and cards. The Foundation also has two buses that go quite often to shopping trips and points of interest.

After living in this fine building for over 15 years we can truly say, as we did shortly after moving in, that “this really feels like home”.

When I was looking for a place to live I chose Garden View because it seemed so friendly.  I have lived here for ten years and I enjoy it. The people are nice and the staff are wonderful.  I've always got along well with management. I am comfortable here, it is home and just like home I am still free to work in the garden and with the flowers.

I have worked at Garden View Lodge for almost 10 years.  I love working with the seniors, they make my day.   I have a lot of good laughs.  I love working with the staff, the building is beautiful and very clean and I enjoy coming to work.

I have been a volunteer at Garden View Lodge since November 1999.  That was when my father moved to the Lodge.  They were looking for a pianist for hymn sign and Dad said “I wonder if you could do that?”.  I feel very appreciated for my efforts.  Recently, I have been helping with other activities as well as pianist.
