Who We Are

Shepherd’s Care Foundation is a faith-based, not-for-profit organization providing quality care and accommodations to more than 1,800 seniors throughout Edmonton and Barrhead.  Our seven campuses provide living options for a full spectrum of care, including independent living, supportive living, supportive living with dementia, long-term care and complex care. 

Our Christian Roots

In 1970, Edmonton had very few seniors’ homes and there was an obvious gap in services for the older population. A group of individuals were concerned about the well-being of their aging parents. They saw an opportunity and felt a call to make a difference not only for their parents, but also for Edmontonians. What started as an idea over coffee has grown into six locations in Edmonton and one in Barrhead, serving over 1,800 seniors and other individuals.

The Foundation is grounded in Christian beliefs and values. Membership consists of 50 individuals appointed from four sponsoring churches:

Hope City Church (Edmonton)

Southside Pentecostal Assembly (Edmonton)

Bethel Pentecostal Assembly (Barrhead)

Eaglemont Christian Church (Beaumont)

Fourteen of these members are elected at the Annual General Meeting of the Foundation to serve on the Board of Directors. For more information about joining the Foundation, please see our Get Involved page.
