Bethany Care Society Announces First Phase of Construction for Cochrane Redevelopment

Bethany Care Society today celebrates yet another significant step forward in the Redevelopment of Bethany Cochrane project with its announcement of the first phase of construction. The groundbreaking of Phase 1A of this project is eagerly anticipated for spring 2018.

In October 2016, Bethany announced the proposed three-phase redevelopment for a new Bethany Cochrane “Campus of Care for Seniors” which envisions market and affordable housing for seniors, as well as supportive living options and long-term care.

Recognizing the imminent needs of the Town of Cochrane’s aging population, Bethany has received approval from the Board of Directors to proceed with 32 market rate Lodge Housing units, deemed Phase 1A. This milestone marks the beginning of construction of the Bethany Cochrane redevelopment.

Bethany is anxiously awaiting the outcome of the government funding applications to determine next steps in terms of future project phasing. As a non-profit Society, funding from the Government of Alberta is a critical component of any major project.

Since the late 1980’s, Bethany has had the privilege of being the only provider of long-term care in the Cochrane community. This redevelopment project supports the Town’s overall goal of providing a diversity of housing for its citizens. Bethany remains committed to evolving to meet the housing needs of all seniors in Cochrane.

Progress updates will be shared as the “Campus of Care for Seniors” redevelopment project continues to evolve. Those with questions are encouraged to contact: [email protected].
