Living at Carewest
At Carewest, our philosophy doesn’t end with how we provide care, but also the environment in which we provide it. We strive to create a safe environment based on resident choice and independence, “whole person” care delivery, a continuous learning, team-based service delivery, and ongoing quality improvement.
With 13 locations in Calgary, Carewest offers 18 unique programs and services to Calgarians of all ages in long-term care, rehabilitation and recovery and community day programs.

Carewest - Innovative health care
At Carewest, we strive to be forward thinking and approach things differently in the hopes of bringing value to our residents, clients, volunteers and staff. We continually ask ourselves: “how can we do this better?” New ideas and fresh thinking have been our cornerstone, helping take us from where we were more than half a century ago to the progressive health care organization we are today. We believe as strongly in responsiveness, evolution and growth as we do in our, history, foundation and experience.

Donors make a difference
Donors play a significant role in supporting leading-edge equipment such as fixed-ceiling and portable-floor lifts and electric beds. Beyond the need for vital equipment needs, less tangible needs – such as a comfortable environment, a special meal or a sense of joy – can also be attained through donations.
