Trinity Place Foundation of Alberta will showcase Templemont, an innovative seniors housing project in Calgary that provides housing for low-income seniors, encourages ageing.
Affordable housing options are a critical need for the growing population of seniors in the province of Alberta. This need rings true for Calgary’s Temple community’s senior residents, who have found it challenging to find housing within their means. In response, the Trinity Place Foundation of Alberta has partnered with Alberta’s Provincial government to produce a 120-unit care facility that will provide low-income seniors with safe, comfortable, and affordable homes. The Templemont project comprises two buildings. One building will deliver 70 supportive housing units, and the second will contain 50 one-two bedroom apartments for low-income seniors when completed. These units will allow senior residents to age in place and maintain social connections within their communities. One of the building includes a large multi-purpose hall shared with multiple community groups during the week that will encourage interaction and limit social isolation. This project is an innovative solution that responds to the community’s needs and makes life easier for those who need it the most.
