Elders Caring Shelter:
The Elders Caring Shelter is a safe home-like environment for seniors that are in financial crisis due to health issues that will no longer allow them to work.
Some are fleeing domestic violence situations and numerous other crises that one might find themselves in at this late stage of life.

The Shelter has a zero drug and alcohol policy.
 

Throughout the year we have many social gatherings where we celebrate each others’ birthdays and achievements, mourn each other's losses like family.
We become a close-knit group that for the most part function quite well together. All residents take part in badly needed fundraising campaigns through Ticket Sales and BBQ's, that help pay for the day to day operations of the Shelter.


So, if you see us out there selling tickets or BBQ please support us. As a Resident, I find it too unpleasant to contemplate where I might be right now if it were not for the support of the Elder's Caring Shelter.
Sincerely: Resident Gerald. B.

Some of the enjoyable activities throughout the year


Here are several pictures that have been put together so that you can have an idea of what we do here for entertainment at the Shelter.


The residents participate in many activities throughout the summer and winter months with family and friends.


There is 5 Pin Bowling, Crib Tournaments, Karaoke, Quilt making, which is very important for our fundraising campaigns & Christmas Celebrations.


During the summer, residents go on a 4-day 4-night retreat to Hide A Way Camp near Grande Cache, Alberta where they may participate in Canoeing, Site Seeing, Singing, Dancing and Storytelling around a Camp Fire at night.
