At The Manor Village we believe in not just adding years to your life but life to your years. So, our outstanding Activity and Lifestyle teams organize a monthly calendar of outings and activities that are social, stimulating and enjoyable for all our Residents. From leisure drives to shopping trips, lunch excursions to theatre evenings, movies nights and craft sessions, there’ll be something to appeal to everyone.
The Manor Village goes all out
No-one does a day out better than The Manor Village! Our innovative Activity and Lifestyle Teams consult with our Residents on a regular basis, so they know exactly what they want to see and do. Many seniors don’t like to drive at night, or prefer to go out during the daytime. At The Manor Village, we have our own minibus and friendly drivers, so everyone can just sit back, relax and enjoy the ride and not worry about parking, traffic, or find that elusive level access into a venue!

At all our Manor Village senior communities, we always love to see Residents heading out with their families on special outings. We know that family members don’t always live locally, and might not know what would make a great day out for the whole family. So, we’ve been checking the listings for great things for you and your senior relatives to do this Fall in Calgary.
