In those twenty years, Points West Living and Connecting Care have seen exponential growth. Their foundational roots and continued success are traced back to their foundations in Alberta. “It is actually a homegrown Alberta success story” outlines Revell. “We are Alberta-based. We were founded by three individuals situated within Alberta. We have grown over the years to not only own and operate our own communities, but we also provide third party management services, operational services, and development services to other owners or senior housing facilities or communities.” Aside from employing around 1,500 individuals, Connecting Care provides services to 3,000 seniors across three provinces. Points West Living currently lists eleven locations. Two additional active lifestyle locations— Three Robins Red Deer and Three Robins Stony Plain— were opened within the past two years. The expansion of Connecting Care’s operational services continues. “We actively provided development services to an expansion known as Points West Living Red Deer Phase 2 which recently opened.
