There is always something to do at Emmanuel Home!
Social isolation is a common and serious problem that many seniors face. That is why keeping both socially and physically active in a vibrant and supportive retirement community is so important for residents who call Emmanuel Home their home.
We offer a wide range of leisure and recreational activities for seniors in both independent and assisted living facilities, including our in-house Keep Fit program, entertainment and special events, games featured on our weekly Games Night and regular community outings. Shuffleboard and billiards are always available to residents and our recreation program offers something for everyone!
During the summertime, residents can enjoy the beautiful flower gardens planted in our courtyard as they relax or spend time with family and friends in the gazebo or sitting on park benches. Emmanuel Home also has a gardening area where residents can plant vegetables like green beans, tomatoes, potatoes and peas.
Emmanuel Home also has an on-site library, the well-appointed Gerry Segger Library, that offers an excellent selection of books and computers to use. This room also provides a quiet space for residents to relax and reflect.
Emmanuel Home is a Christian senior living facility that provides services to meet the spiritual needs of our residents. We offer a Wednesday morning devotion time provided by various pastors from the local Reformed Christian Community. Trinity Christian Reformed Church, our neighbour, provides spiritual support and service to residents through its pastor, Rev. Rich deLange.
Residents will also enjoy a bi-weekly Hymn Sing on Monday at 7:00 PM and bi-weekly Even Song on Wednesday at 7:00 PM.
Emmanuel Home provides a healthy retirement community for our residents and is committed to keeping ties to the greater community around us strong. Sometimes members of the community are invited to our home and other times we head out into the community. Here are some community locations in Edmonton and area that our residents visit:
