Red Deer, Alberta, is a great place to live. This is true for people of any age, but it is especially true for seniors because Red Deer has considerable community resources for seniors. Here are some of these great senior resources available in Red Deer:
Golden Circle - The Golden Circle is a hub of senior activities located at 4620 47A Street. It has existed since 1977 as a meeting place, referral centre, and source of senior activities and resources. They are currently open Monday to Friday from 8:30 to 4:30. You can even volunteer with them.
Family Services of Central Alberta - Family Services of Central Alberta (FSCA) is located at 5409 50th Avenue and can be reached at (403) 343- 6400. They operate several programs, including art classes for seniors, adult day respite support, and individualized or customized in-home services as needed.
Alberta Motor Association Guide (Red Deer) - There’s a terrific little guide published by the AMA regarding senior transportation in Red Deer, published online here. This guide includes information not just about the regular bus service but also about their door-to-door Action Bus Service for anyone with mobility problems who cannot use regular transportation, other transportation choices, and driving classes for seniors to help them stay on the road as long as safely possible, and a wealth of other senior resources and services available in Red Deer.
Red Deer, Alberta, offers an impressive array of senior programs and resources. We love Red Deer because we own and operate a beautiful independent-living senior village called the Hamlets at Deer Park.
