MISSISSAUGA, Ontario, June 23, 2021 – Today, Revera, a leader in the senior living sector, is releasing Unforgettable Ian, a film about a remarkable resident at Revera’s Stoneridge Manor Long Term Care Home in Carleton Place, Ontario.

In 2019, prior to the onset of the pandemic, Revera set out to produce a film about life in long term care as part of our Age is More program to celebrate older adults and combat ageism. The story focuses on one resident, Ian Doig, who has lived an extraordinary life as a Veteran in the Canadian military and later in the Canadian diplomatic service. The film chronicles his journey as he learns to live with dementia and his experiences after moving into the Ottawa-area long term care home.

“Revera is proud to meet the evolving needs of older adults through our retirement residences. The Scenic Grande offers endless choices and possibilities for senior living,” said Thomas Wellner, President and CEO, Revera. “It has quickly grown into a thriving, vibrant community of active seniors in Calgary.”

The Scenic Grande offers a variety of recreation programs, designed using Revera’s Dimensions of Wellness holistic approach to recreation. Residents are encouraged to support their health goals, socialize with fellow residents and explore their passions.

State-of-the-art amenities at The Scenic Grande include a saltwater swimming pool, a virtual golf simulator, an art studio, wine cellar, fitness centre, games room and a theatre. The residence has three dining halls, a pub and a bistro to give residents flexible culinary options.

Revera’s personalized care plans create an opportunity for both independence and choice through tailored care plans and programs.

Residents benefit from access to a range of personalized health and wellness services and facilities designed to cater to evolving needs. This includes Revera’s innovative Reflections Memory Care Program which offers specialized, individualized care and support for residents experiencing memory loss.

“The Scenic Grande is a beautiful addition to Revera’s retirement living options in Calgary,” said John Beaney, Senior Vice President, Retirement, Revera. “It’s a welcoming community that allows seniors to do more of what they want. There is something for everyone at The Scenic Grande.”
