The governments of Alberta and Canada are providing more affordable housing options for seniors in Raymond with the opening of Ridgeview Lodge.
The new lodge, about 36 kilometres south of Lethbridge, provides more modern, affordable housing for seniors with low income living in Raymond and the surrounding area. With 40 units, nine more than the original building, Ridgeview Lodge provides home care and other services and amenities to ensure seniors can continue to live safely and independently in their chosen community.
Cardston-Siksika MLA Joseph Schow participated in the grand opening on behalf of Seniors and Housing Minister Josephine Pon.
“Seniors have served their friends and families for a lifetime and they want to be able to continue living in their chosen communities. Thanks to the opening of the new Ridgeview Lodge, there are now more affordable housing options right here in Raymond. Our government is pleased to partner in projects that support seniors and their families,” said Josephine Pon, Minister of Seniors and Housing in a statement.
