“It’s our aim to create places where Residents, their families and staff are treated with respect and dignity, and are inspired to live their best lives.”
Choices in Community Living is an Alberta-based, family-run organization which manages housing for persons requiring Supported Living (also known as Assisted Living). CICL works with Alberta Health Services to provide affordable Designated Supportive Living (Levels 4 and 4D).
To provide excellent care in comfortable, joyful environments
Supportive living merges the concepts of independent living and 24-hour support. It offers a home for people who value their autonomy and privacy, but also require assistance with daily living activities or supervision. Shared responsibility, choice and managed risk are the key concepts on which Supportive Living is founded. Dignity, independence, privacy, individuality, confidentiality and providing home amenities are hallmarks. Wherever possible, Supportive Living allows residents the opportunity to direct their own lives to the maximum extent of their abilities.
Designated Supportive Living is a term used by Alberta Health Services which indicates that there is subsidy and placement of persons requiring Supportive Living services into “designated” units. Residents of Choices in Community Living Lodges are placed through Alberta Health Services Continuing Care. Personal care is coordinated with Alberta Health Services on-site Case Managers. If you are interested in placement into a Choices in Community Living please contact your area’s Continuing Care branch.

The WestPark Lodge was established in 1996, and is situated in the lovely residential WestPark community of Red Deer, Alberta. Formally the WestPark Nursing Home which was built in 1965, Phil & Evelyne Gaudet renovated the space in 1995 when it became the first private Assisted Living residence in Alberta. This marked the beginning of Choices in Community Living.
Still a family-run Supportive/Assisted Living facility, the WestPark Lodge is home to 36 Residents and over 50 staff. At only one-storey high and retaining some of its 60s charm, the WestPark Lodge is a beloved Red Deer institution, which has earned a reputation for wonderful care and dedicated staff. The WestPark Lodge is small-capacity, has only private suites, many large windows, and is comfortable yet unpretentious.
