Quality Care at Seasons

Seasons offers a range of care options to meet our residents’ varied and evolving needs. We believe in a flexible approach to care that supports our residents’ preferences. Before moving in, we will assess a resident’s needs and recommend the appropriate, bundled care package that best reflects their individual preferences.

Independent Living (IL)

Some of our communities have townhouses and apartments with full kitchens. They are designed for those who wish to live independently in a community designed for older adults with access to social or recreational programming. Our apartments offer weekly housekeeping services, and both the apartments and townhouses are equipped with an emergency call system, but no regular care services are provided.

Independent Supportive Living (ISL)

Independent supportive living suits an independent, active older adult who does not require care services but who would enjoy a convenient lifestyle surrounded by friendly staff and neighbours. Residents in ISL typically enjoy services such as 24-hour emergency response, two or three meals daily, weekly housekeeping, and medication management. They can also receive assistance with scheduled care if needed.

Assisted Living (AL)

The assisted living program at Seasons provides supportive care to residents who need assistance with daily tasks but do not require the skilled care provided at a long-term care residence. Residents receive the same services as ISL, plus any additional care services that assist with the activities of daily living, including unscheduled care.

Memory Care

The memory care program at Seasons is specifically designed to care for seniors living with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease in a dedicated, secure area within some of our residences. Memory care community residents receive specialized AL care services. The Seasons Embrace Today® memory care philosophy requires a deep understanding of who our residents are, so staff may adjust their interactions and respond with whatever is needed in the moment. Each of our trained service team members commits to approaching the workday with a promise to do their best to make all interactions positive and meaningful, one moment at a time. We believe that having positive, authentic relationships among all care partners elevates person-centred care and makes it more meaningful.

Independent Living (IL)

Some of our communities offer independent apartments with full kitchens. They are designed for those who can live independently but wish to be in a community designed for older adults with access to social or recreational programming. Our apartments are equipped with an emergency call system, receive weekly housekeeping and optional hospitality services, but no regular care services are provided.

Independent Supportive Living (ISL)

Independent supportive living suits an independent, active older adult who does not require care services but who would enjoy a convenient lifestyle surrounded by friendly staff and neighbours. Residents in ISL typically enjoy services such as 24-hour emergency response, two or three meals daily, weekly housekeeping, and medication administration. They can also receive assistance with scheduled care if needed.

Designated Supportive Living (DSL)

Adults living in Designated Supportive Living (DSL) need significant support for many aspects of daily living but do not need care in a long-term care residence. DSL residents receive personal care as determined by an Alberta Health Services individual care plan, including wellness checks, three meals daily, housekeeping services, 24-hour emergency response and optional additional services as needed.

Designated Supportive Living (DSL3)

Designated Supportive Living 3 is a setting that allows you to enjoy privacy and independence with the comfort of knowing your health and personal care supports are onsite when you need them. Seasons communities with DSL3 suites provide meals, housekeeping, linen and recreational services. Health Care services are provided on an unscheduled basis by a Health Care Aide.

Designated Supportive Living (DSL4)

Seasons communities with DSL4 suites provide meals, housekeeping, linen and recreational services. A higher level of personal care support is provided, and health care services are offered onsite for scheduled and unscheduled care needs, according to the plan of care. DSL4 is suitable for individuals who have more complex medical needs that are predictable and safely managed with onsite, professional nursing (LPN level) and the direction of the case manager.

Designated Supportive Living (DSL4D)

DSL4D provides specialized dementia care. DSL4D is for individuals with moderate to severe dementia, who may have a high risk of wandering and unpredictable behaviours but are not a safety risk to themselves or others. DSL4D residents receive specialized care services.

The Seasons Embrace Today® memory care philosophy is an integral part of DSL4D care in a Seasons residence. This philosophy requires a deep understanding of who our residents are, so staff may adjust their interactions and respond with whatever is needed in the moment. Each of our trained service team members commits to approaching the workday with a promise to do their best to make all interactions positive and meaningful, one moment at a time. We believe that having positive, authentic relationships among all care partners elevates person-centred care and makes it more meaningful.

Quiet or involved, relaxed or busy – it’s up to you.

Your Food is Our Passion

We know food plays a significant role in how our residents feel about living at Seasons Retirement Communities, so they must enjoy the food we prepare for them. We hire skilled chefs who love food just as much as our residents do. Our dining service teams know what it takes to ensure healthy and well-balanced meals without compromising taste and presentation.
