Lake Bonavista Village is beautifully situated on eight park-like acres on the west-side of the well-established and upscale Calgary community of Lake Bonavista. Our retirement village is centrally located in the midst of native trees and tended gardens alongside a pathway that meanders around the main building and through our cul de sac community of thirteen cottages. These unique cottages encircle a community gazebo which adjoins a walkway to a pedestrian bridge over Anderson Road to Southcentre Mall. This park-like setting along with our rare cluster of bungalows, makes Lake Bonavista Village an ideal place for seniors to find inspiration and peace in this very popular corner of Calgary.
With a passion for reading nonfiction and biographies, Joyce Nolan can never get enough of history and understanding what makes people do what they do. This makes her keenly aware of the great richness of personality and life experience that each resident brings to the community and she takes great pleasure in making sure that Lake Bonavista Village runs smoothly and that it meets and exceeds the expectations of those who call it “home”.
Services & Amenities
What does it mean to live with Verve? At Lake Bonavista Village, we have a highly-skilled group of registered health care professionals and 24/7 personal care aides who are able to provide that small helping hand to our residents when they may require that extra bit of care and support such as medication and/or bathing assistance. Living well means living safely, with the peace of mind of knowing that help is never far away. Our resident services department is here to make sure that you are connected with the assistance and information you need when you need it.
Just because you're aging doesn't mean you should stop living an active and vibrant lifestyle. Your dreams, passions and hobbies are as unique as you are. Lake Bonavista Village is a place where you can continue to be you and continue to grow as an individual by being socially connected, and challenged in mind, body, and spirit. At our residence, you will find qualified individuals planning and delivering a wide assortment of daily programs, along with dedicated spaces for your leisure pastimes, and a great community of folks to join you in your adventures and applaud you along the way.
Lake Bonavista is a place you can call home. And not because it's where you wake up every morning, but because you're surrounded by peace of mind and warmth from people who genuinely care about your well-being. We believe that you should feel safe and reassured when living here. Our 24 hour professional staff, emergency call system with optional pendants, video monitoring, and visitor sign-in, are just the beginning. All our employees are trained to keep an eye out for you and to make sure that each day is a great day… whether it be our receptionist at the front desk, our maintenance personnel, or the server in the dining room; everyone is actively watching out for your well-being. We call it “protective oversight” and it means that your safety isn't treated like a job—it's woven into everything we do.
If your home had everything you needed at your fingertips, combined with an engaging social calendar, you'd never want to leave. That's how we approach our communities, and Lake Bonavista Village is without exception. Fulfilling your spirit, body, and mind means challenging yourself and bettering yourself. So… try taking a plunge in the pool or joining an art class, and when you're done, relax with friends in our Bistro for a cup of coffee or toast to your day's accomplishments over a glass of wine or other spirits at our scheduled happy hours.
For most of us, the kitchen is the heart of the home. Everyone is welcomed with open arms and good food, and keeping in mind the tastes and preferences of both guests and family members alike is a pleasure. We agree that fussing over loved ones is a joyful part of creating a memorable meal, be it formal or informal.
