Frequently Asked Questions
In order to be eligible for residency at one of our lodges, you must be:
- 65 years of age or older
- A Canadian citizen
- Able to live independently with minimal supports
- Either a resident living within the current Evergreens Foundation boundaries or are dependant on an eligible resident
To apply to be a resident, you must meet the qualification requirements. If you qualify, you can complete and submit an Admission Forms Package to the Resident Coordinator of the facility to which you are applying.
Resident selection is based upon the needs and rating criteria as established by the Alberta Seniors & Housing Ministry Community Supports. Applicants with the greatest need and who can function with basic supports are given priority. A summary of factors is used for evaluating candidates, including risk factors, degree of independence, housing need, income level, and special circumstances. Approval rests with the Client Services Manager, and The Chief Administrative Officer; any applications by those under the age requirements (65+) must be approved by the CAO or Board of Directors.
Those with high health care needs may be directed towards housing that offers 24-hour nursing care.
If you are currently residing outside of Alberta, you may be eligible to apply if you have immediate family members (son, daughter, spouse, or sibling) in the community you are applying to. This may not apply to Alpine Summit Seniors Lodge in Jasper, as additional accommodation criteria are required by Parks Canada.

Rent is calculated on an annual basis and is based on 30% of the income of an individual or couple.
Heat, water/sewer, and shared laundry are all included in rent.
Cable, electricity, and parking if required are added to your monthly rental payment.
Under-aged applicants will be discussed and approved by the CAO or Board of Directors in situations where there are currently no eligible residents on the waitlist.
All applications are scored based on priority of need. This means that those who have the greatest need for housing will be moved in first. No specific wait time can be given as move-in rates depend on the number of vacancies.
Applicants must be functionally independent, with or without the assistance of existing community-based services (for example, Meals on Wheels or Home Care). Your medical practitioner will be required to fill out a medical report which will be used to determine your eligibility.
