Shepherd’s Care Kensington Campus is the largest of our communities with over 600 residents calling it home. A 17-acre campus in the Kensington neighbourhood in northwest Edmonton, this Campus is known for it’s friendly, Christian environment. Developed around a spacious outdoor courtyard, residents experience a wheelchair accessible park with a barbeque area, walking paths and miniature horses from spring to fall.

There are many ways to socialize and be involved through resident formed social groups, auxiliaries and clubs or Campus-run programming. We also provide intergenerational programming through our Adopt a School program, contributing to a young, vibrant atmosphere for the whole campus.

Kensington has the first of its kind Veteran’s unit, established after resident lobbied for the unit. Each Remembrance Day, we hold a Service with over 100 guests in attendance.

Close in proximity to grocery stores, shopping centres and restaurants, Kensington is easily accessible by major thoroughfares and bus routes.

In 2015, construction was completed on the new Kensington Community Christian Church for use by all Campus residents and has been a welcomed addition. Pastoral care services are available to all residents. Church services and bible studies are held throughout the week. For more information, please visit our Spiritual Life page.
