At Emmanuel Home, residents can live life to the fullest!
We offer independent living and assisted living for Edmonton seniors in a supportive and loving Christian retirement community. Residents enjoy beautiful courtyards and grounds, spacious and comfortable suites, a diverse range of recreational programs and activities and a caring, dedicated staff.
Our housing for seniors can accommodate those who desire independent living as well as those who require more care through assisted living facilities. All our residents benefit from our health care program, provided through Alberta Health Services, that includes care from Certified Health Care Aides and/or a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) who is on site 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Providing more than just seniors’ housing and healthcare, Emmanuel Home is committed to meeting the physical, social and spiritual needs of residents in our Christian community. We employ a Recreation Coordinator who provides a wide range of programs and activities including fitness and exercise programs, entertainment, social events and outings to attractions, events and activities throughout our community and the City of Edmonton.
Our Mission: To offer seniors a Christian environment that is safe and comfortable so they can live in dignity.
Our Core Values: Integrity, Caring, Excellence
In 1968, the Emmanuel Seniors Living Society (formerly Christian Senior Citizens Home Society of Northern Alberta) was registered as a charitable not-for-profit society under the Alberta Societies Act legislation. This started the dream and mission to provide quality care and housing for seniors in our Christian community – all under the guiding principles captured in the name Emmanuel, which means God with us.
Emmanuel Home first opened its doors as a brand-new seniors living facility in 1972, offering 36 suites and several lodge-style accommodations. Most residents were moved in by the end of November 1972 with the grand opening held in February 1973. That original building is now called the West Wing.
In May of 1994, construction began on a new 51-suite wing, now called the Centre Wing, to expand our retirement community. Renovations were also made to the central dining and recreation areas. The newly expanded Emmanuel Home was officially opened on September 30, 1995.
In 2012, the facility was expanded further to include the East Wing with the addition of 56 new suites.
In April of 2020, the facility was expanded further to include the North Wing with the addition of 50 new suites, a large Common area, including a Café, for all residents to enjoy.

The Emmanuel Seniors Living Society (formerly Christian Senior Citizens Home Society of Northern Alberta) was registered as a charitable not-for-profit society under the Government of Alberta’s Societies Act in 1968. Since then, the Society has provided both independent and assisted living facilities to seniors in our Christian community. All of this is accomplished under the guiding principles captured in the name Emmanuel, which means God with us.
The Board of Directors is the governing body in all matters pertaining the Society, operating under the Alberta Societies Act and the bylaws of the Emmanuel Seniors Living Society.
Board members are representatives of the Society membership and provide leadership to the Chief Executive Officer. They also have a fiduciary responsibility to see that the finances and records of the Society are in good order, and support the organization by making necessary policies and decisions.
