How U/D Is Changing The Way We Age-In-Place: Say Hello to Maple

February 28, 2018

A commitment to building a community of age-inclusivity is shaping University District’s growth.


From building a walkable neighbourhood that puts pedestrians first, to offering multi-family homes that allow us to stay close to the people that matter most — U/D is bringing Northwest Calgary a community that’s built for life.


Our recently co-hosted event, The Importance of Home, Community and Care as We Age, explored the modern perspectives and options for living better as people face issues that come with getting older. From considering the effects of social isolation, to understanding the role that mobility plays, and considering how a community can preserve vibrancy— we discussed how environment plays a major role in determining the way we age. Much of the discussion centred around how important housing is to everyone — a topic near to our hearts and top-of-mind at U/D.


We are mindful that growing as a community means reflecting the values and addressing the needs of the people who live here.


That is why we were excited and honoured to announce Cambridge Manor — a state-of-the-art seniors living facility within University District that will be built in tandem with our partner, The Brenda Strafford Foundation. Through Cambridge Manor, U/D will be able to offer residents a chance to age-in-place—with amenities to suit the needs of seniors, enabling our residents to enjoy a community that provides essential flexibility in housing.


But that’s not all.


Our builder partner Truman is also stepping out with Maple, a seniors independent living development with one and two-bedroom unit options in the range from 580 to 1080 square feet.  

Maple is distinct because of its livable and age-friendly design features, including wider doors, larger, more accessible bathrooms and Truman’s own signature commitment to elevated fit and finish quality.


Interestingly, Maple will be accessible by a Plus 30 connection to Cambridge Manor so amenities can be shared with residents between the two buildings, like dining, recreation and education services. It also makes it easier for families requiring multiple levels of care and support to easily spend time together, which increases their quality of life to be close to loved ones.



“The quintessential Maple resident is an active senior who enjoys life on the move, community connections, and amenities without compromise,” says Dilesh Sidhpura, Sales Manager at Truman. “Depending on their healthcare or lifestyle needs, our residents can age in place and live comfortably without having to relocate.”


With access to Cambridge Manor, residents can age in place with supportive living and long term care services, including therapeutic care, bringing comfort and security with any treatments that are needed.



Beyond the onsite healthcare services, Maple is also steps away from amenities like green spaces and pathways, Save-On-Foods, a variety of shops, and Calgary Transit, making accessibility easy for simple day-to-day needs.


Truman is excited to unveil what’s coming to our community with Maple— the only seniors residence of its kind within U/D and Calgary’s Northwest — and recognizes the opportunity it offers to senior homeowners.
