Villa Marguerite is a friendly and supportive home for more than 200 residents. In 2015 Villa Marguerite joined the Park Place Seniors Living family and found the Park Place Seniors Living mission - 'to enrich the lives of seniors (and the people we serve) through innovation and creativity' matched the goals of the Villa Marguerite team.
Villa Marguerite provides Designated Supportive Living care and services for 134 residents with physical challenges and mental health needs. Villa Marguerite also serves 94 senior residents with dementia who live safely in a secure community.
This historic facility is located amid beautiful grounds in a quiet residential setting on the west side of Edmonton. The location will be further developed into a full campus of care with the 2018 opening of a 99- bed long term care home. The care home is currently under construction.
The Villa Marguerite team strives to create communities where residents are involved in decisions that matter to them and have choices in how they want their day to unfold. There are regular meetings with residents and ongoing opportunities to provide feedback so the team can improve care and services.
