Ruth grew up in a small outport community in eastern Canada and feels like she has “come home” to the prairie community of The Lodge at Valley Ridge where the vitality of the residents and getting to know your neighbour is so important. It is that neighbour helping neighbour attitude that makes The Lodge at Valley Ridge Retirement Residence the friendly and welcoming community that it is.

What People Say About Us
"I’ve been here since October and before the pandemic I really enjoyed the entertainment on Wednesdays and that we had so many different activities to choose from. I like the fact that you don’t have to go to the lab to get your blood check! That’s a huge plus. The staff is very cheerful and happy all the time (during this time its much needed)."
We just wanted to express our sincere thanks for the effort The Lodge put forth for mom’s 100th birthday. She was over the moon and it was so appreciated especially under these severe circumstances. The set up was perfect and homey, and I wouldn’t be surprised if you get some interest in the lodge. I sure hope so! You went the extra mile to make it special. The meals for the whole day were excellent. Mom said that the steak was the best she had eaten. We zoomed with family for over an hour last night. She was able to visit with her kids, grandkids, nieces and nephews and some cousins from all over Calgary and British Columbia.
Thanks again for making her feel so loved and cared for.
Dear Sany & Genelly,
How can we say THANKS for all you’ve done for us? When we were looking, for 2 years, for a Lodge where we could retire, we are sure it was God’s guidance for us to choose Valley Ridge Retirement. We have not regretted this for 4 years now & brag about our Chef, Life Enrichment, Manager Ruth & all the staff here, to family & friends. Our children, Sheri & Kevin, are content that we are well looked after in our ‘old-er’ age, & we are.
We thank God for you all, your kindness, hearts to serve, friendliness, and a desire to please. You do that very well. We are truly blessed for knowing many of you personally.
Very sincerely, from us two.
