I have a parent living here- since being sold it has gone downhill
Aesthetically, it is a beautiful building- but there have been issues with plugs not working, poor heating cooling control and most recently with poor and inconsistent food quality.
Since letting go of their chef ( maybe to save money) the food has been cold, inconsistent in quality and of poor presentation
The activities are less frequent and there is very little evening programming options- often when you go to visit everything is locked up tight and closed down by 830. Most times after 630 residents are in their suites as there is nothing offered
The new management has been most disappointing and the changes have devalued the packages offered
In comparing to other venues in Calgary this one is now no longer worth the $4600 é month
Wow, when we entered it was like walking up into a five star hotel lobby. Lunch was very good. The staff were very friendly and talked to everyone calling them by name. Loads of activities even a theatre and pool. Security cameras and staff everywhere we looked. Nice, clean and tastefully decorated. Anthony, our tour director was very friendly and knowledgeable. Unfortunately the bus is only for scheduled outings.
The best place for seniors or on short term or long term stay. The place is like a cruise ship, so much things to do. Very near to all amenities, ambiance is great.
My visit at Amica at Aspen Woods
Overall, I thought this community was great! I would give it 5 stars for every rating but value. The cost of the community is kind of high. But, for the most part, I really enjoyed this community.
