The Self-Contained Program is the perfect apartment program for low-income seniors. Rent is 30% of an individual’s income, which means the rent is between $500-$600 for most people. This means that seniors have some money left over to enjoy life. Our Self-Contained apartment buildings are located throughout the City of Red Deer. We offer bachelor, handicapped units or 1-bedroom suites.
Age restrictions do apply – ages 55 and up for our bachelor suites, ages 65 and up for our 1 bedroom apartments.
Your apartment has a full kitchen, so you are independent and able to live your life to the fullest. All buildings have a large community area, in which resident-organized activities take place. This is a great way to meet new friends, enjoy dances, play Bingo or engage in other activities with friends.
Our buildings offer elevators, common rooms or recreation areas, resident based social clubs, laundry facilities, and garden plots. For your convenience, the buildings are also close to public transit, parks and other amenities Each building has its own personality. Your neighbours and yourself create a community culture that reflects who you are.
Our buildings are Pet Free and Smoke-Free.
If you are finding it challenging to manage some day-to-day living chores, we encourage you to contact Home Care or other community-based agencies who support seniors in their homes. We want you to be proud of your home; we can connect you with the right supports that give you the freedom to enjoy life to the fullest.
Why I Love Living Here
I am comfortable here at Barrett Place because of the security and safety the building offers. It makes me feel at home. My favorite thing to do here is to dance! I LOVE dancing and singing.
