Living in Age-Friendly Edmonton

Age-friendly Edmonton

Our healthy and growing senior demographic is proof that we are an Age-friendly City.

The Paranych Luxury team is proud of our city. We think that our city offers people the perfect combination of community, energy, opportunity and compassion.

Our city’s ongoing commitment to all people was made clear with the Edmonton Seniors Declaration back in 2010, when the World Health Organization (WHO) officially made Edmonton an Age Friendly City. In our Declaration, it states that:

 

Individuals are respected regardless of age. All generations have much to teach and learn from each other.
Older people have ready access to programs, employment, activities and services that help them stay engaged, respected and appreciated.
Age is a gift to the city. We will value all the individuals who bring it to us.

 

Our city has benefitted from the vision of our seniors today and current leaders, volunteers and citizens work to ensure that seniors receive the support they need.

The city recognizes that as more families and newcomers arrive in Edmonton, the senior population grows. In fact, according to this report, Edmonton’s senior population is expected to grow from 13% to 20% over the next 10 years.

Our city is responding to this growth by working closely with senior groups and centres around Edmonton to ensure that they have the support they need to thrive.

There are specific cultural and multicultural support groups, lifestyle groups and senior programs available for people who are settling into our great city.

Below is a short list of some of the many support services and groups available to seniors. We’ve marked the areas of the city these centres are located, as well as the local phone numbers.

Edmonton has taken strides to ensure that our community meets the needs of our senior population, allowing our wisest citizens to be active, supported and welcome in the neighbourhoods they call home. It’s a comfort to know that our local leadership, businesses and neighbourhoods recognize the value of our senior population in helping our communities thrive.

Edmonton Community Spotlight: Woodhaven

Tue, 27 Aug by The Paranych Team

Woodhaven is Edmonton’s hidden gem

Woodhaven

Woodhaven brings nature to your doorstep.

Tucked away in Edmonton’s Southwest corner is the charming new community of Woodhaven. Constructed West of the North Saskatchewan River, Woodhaven is surrounded by natural splendour and offers residents multiple opportunities to embrace the great outdoors. Step inside this luxurious and elegant community, where nature’s wild beauty meets stunning architectural luxury homes. Woodhaven is perfect for active families of all sizes who enjoy the recreational opportunities and natural wilderness available.

Conveniently positioned along the Wedgewood ravine, Woodhaven is a true escape from the hustle and bustle of Edmonton. Only minutes away from the Anthony Henday Drive, its surrounding communities are Cameron Heights to the East and The Hamptons to the North. Due to its pristine location, families in Woodhaven are a quick drive away from services, amenities, and major shopping destinations such as West Edmonton Mall. As Woodhaven continues to bloom, more residents will see an increase of residential housing and established community boundaries.

Developments in the community began in 2011 and will occur over 4 stages. Once completed approximately 650 single family lots, 2 multi-family sites, and 80 acres of open space will occupy the land in Woodhaven. Homes that back onto the ravine are also available. Four of Edmonton’s most respected builders are participating in the first stage of residential developments. These award-winning builders are producing luxury homes in Tudor, Craftsman, and Modern Heritage styles.

If you’re interested in living in the up-and-coming community of Woodhaven, contact The Paranych Team today! Their industry knowledge backed by their team of professionals, can help you find your dream home in the paradise of Woodhaven.
