Shepherd’s Care Vanguard is nestled in the quiet community of Westwood in north Edmonton. Built in 2011, Vanguard is a beautiful four story building with secure floors and interior courtyard. Adjacent to Christian ministry college, Vanguard College, residents experience the energetic environment of the College and students. We work with the College to offer multi-generational and student programming including Tuesday student lunches.
Our beautiful fenced courtyard has a barbeque area, seating and is wheelchair accessible, offering a safe area for residents to enjoy the outdoors. Vanguard is next to public parks and a community hall, as well as located on bus routes and just off major thoroughfares making it easily accessible.
Pastoral care services are available to all residents. Church services and bible studies are held on-site throughout the week. For more information, please visit our Spiritual Life page.
Supportive Living/Designated Supportive Living (SL4) allows individuals to enjoy a home-like setting with the comfort of having health care services provided. It is a great option for individuals who may have medical needs that can be managed to maintain a semi-independent lifestyle.
We have 36 Supportive Living (SL4) units at Shepherd’s Care Vanguard. Admission to Supportive Living is only through a health assessment by Alberta Health Services. Residents pay a government regulated accommodation charge, which covers room and board (three meals per day plus snacks), housekeeping, linen and bedding laundry and some building maintenance costs.
Each unit at Vanguard is private accommodation and are built with easy accessibility and barrier free washrooms.
Pastoral care is available to all residents, including weekly interdenominational church services in our on-site chapel, and hymn sings.
