Calgary Retirement Living

Canadians often dream of their retirement years as a period of re-invention for some, relaxation for others, but nearly always they envision themselves fulfilled, happier and less stressed. However, the reality for many seniors can be marked by loneliness and a sense of disconnection, particularly within traditional retirement communities that offer limited social opportunities and enforce rigid routines. 

Wellings of Calgary, introduced to Alberta by Nautical Lands Group—a company with a wealth of experience in the 55+ residential sector—aims to redefine the way people perceive living in retirement. Their communities are founded on a pro-age philosophy that actively challenges stereotypes and celebrates living your next chapter exactly as you would like to, full of vibrancy and life.
