Bethany Calgary provides services for persons with complex health needs who are unable to remain at home or in a supportive living centre. It is located in West Hillhurst/Hounsfield Heights, on the site of the first ‘Bethany Home.’ While the original building no longer stands, the legacy of caring continues. Residents live in eight different ‘neighborhoods’ which are designed to meet different levels of resident care and accommodation needs. A feature of Bethany Calgary is the bright tropical atrium with a water feature and live trees.
Bethany Calgary is home to more than 400 long term care residents. We provide specialized care and programs for residents with a range of needs, including younger adults with disabilities and individuals with complex dementia.
Bethany Calgary features many unique qualities such as our large, bright tropical atrium with a water feature, live trees and plants, and multi-level terraces. We also have a library, internet access, a chapel for meditation and worship, and an auditorium for larger worship services and social activities.
Bethany Calgary has been an important part of the Hillhurst community in northwest Calgary since 1945. The care centre is well connected to the community and over the years has developed relationships with local schools, churches and community groups.
Bethany Care Society is a faith-based organization and Chaplains minister to residents representing a wide diversity of faiths and denominations. This ministry provides spiritual care for residents, families, staff and volunteers. You can access Pastoral Care by contacting the Chaplains’ office at the care centre.
Bethany Calgary offers a wide variety of social and recreation activities on a weekly and monthly basis.
While some activities are geared towards helping residents maintain mobility and cognitive abilities, others are just for fun. Special occasions and holidays are also celebrated on a regular basis. We also have a wheelchair accessible bus for outings.
Our recreation program is greatly enhanced through volunteers and family members. If you are interested in volunteering, please visit the volunteer section of this website.
Bethany Calgary offers a number of other services that are available at a nominal charge. Some of these services include a hair dresser, a foot care clinic, an audiologist, tuck shop and cafeteria. On-site laundry services are also available for an additional charge and some recreational day trips may require a fee.
