“The Atrium”
Rotary's goal is to serve the community, provide supportive environments inclusive to all generations, and enrich the future, by supporting local demand and opportunities. With a gap in Calgary's senior and dementia care facilities, Rotary has taken the opportunity to embrace the aging population. A leader in Calgary's senior care sector, Bethany has over seventy years of experience and established dementia care expertise. With a need for developing dementia care in Calgary, Bethany has partnered with Rotary to create “The Atrium”.
