Prairie Ridge

seniors care

The Good Samaritan Society - Prairie Ridge 85-bed assisted living facility is a unique arrangement of supportive living and geriatric mental health suites, innovative for a facility in rural Alberta. The main floor consists of a 12-bed dementia cottage and 30 mental health beds, in 3 cottages, organized around a central treatment area operated by AHS. The bright and airy second floor provides 38 enhanced living beds and 5 community support beds accessing common dining, chapel, lounges and other amenity spaces. The mental health cottage incorporates a distinctive plan layout that ensures a visually open, but spatially diverse, and safe environment for residents, quite different from the circular dementia cottage model. During the design process, FWBA Architects assisted GSS in securing appropriate land in the community and with several community and AHS consultations.
