Confederation Park closing by end of year

March 25, 2021

Silvera’s Confederation Park supportive living community will be closing early next year.

“Older Calgarians want, need, and deserve more than what can be offered at Confederation Park Lodge,” said Arlene Adamson, Silvera CEO. “This has been made clearer during the pandemic.

“Older Calgarians want, need, and deserve more than what can be offered at Confederation Park Lodge,” said Arlene Adamson, Silvera CEO. “This has been made clearer during the pandemic.

The building, constructed more than 50 years ago in the city’s northwest, has infrastructure limitations, such as shared bathrooms, that no longer make this provincially owned, Silvera-operated residence viable.

Current Confederation Park residents will be offered housing in other Silvera communities, including Gilchrist Gardens, the new supportive living community under construction in Pineridge.

Confederation Park employees will be offered employment options in other communities.

“We understand this may be a difficult change for some residents and their families,” said Arlene. “That is why we are communicating our intentions early and are committed to supporting everyone through the transition to another Silvera community.

“Thank you to our Confederation Park residents and employees for their continuing contribution to community life, especially during these continuing, challenging, COVID-19 times.”
