Points West Living Wainwright in Alberta, Canada joined the Eden Alternative Registry on January 21, 2016. This home is nestled in the small town of Wainwright, a unique town in Alberta that has a strong, vibrant & friendly community spirit. The 100 Elders that live here enjoy living independ045ently in a supportive and engaging environment. It is a place where days are filled with opportunities to engage with others doing things like the knitting club that gets together on Monday evenings. Currently, they are making lap blankets and to date they have given way nearly 75 blankets to those in need. Other groups include a Bible study group, the Birds on a Wire choir, and a really fun cooking club. If you like to be competitive, they are always looking for folks to participate in their poker clubs and pool table tournaments.  Recently, they partnered with the community to create an Expression of Love quilt that embraced the experiences of those living with dementia. They also participate in craft fairs and host a big Barbeque for the community during Senior’s week. Elders drive the rhythm of daily life with a very active Resident Council. They meet monthly to plan activities and to hear from the food committee, recycling committee and welcoming committee just to name a few.   If you come by for a visit in the springtime, be sure to stop in the beautiful courtyard to see the rose garden is part of The Communities in BIMG_2502loom garden tour.

I have been looking in to Eden Alternative, and am happy to see one so close to my home in Edmonton. I will certainly come check you out when I am in the area. I hope Eden helps you grow beautifully.
