'Togetherness Party' gathers residents
and care partners from every cottage

In Points West Living communities, the ‘cottage’ is most residents’ home base. The cluster of suites centred around a cottage kitchen is a place where a group of residents and regular employee care partners can develop a real sense of family. That makes it all the more special when the full community gathers, such as at the recent 'Togetherness Party' at Points West Living Slave Lake.
