The Journeys team supports older adults (45+) with developmental disabilities as well as age-related and mental health diagnoses in both Calgary and in Ridgestone Lodge in Black Diamond. The program provides support based on the needs and wants of each individual client, from 5 hours of day support per week to a 24 hour staffed residence. From proactive health care to assistance in finding and securing appropriate housing to facilitating leisure opportunities, Journeys successfully supports people to live very active lives in their community.
Referrals can be made by the individual, family, health care provider, PDD or supporting community members.
Are there any eligibility requirements to receive support from the Journeys program?
Yes – individuals must have a developmental disability and be receiving funding from Persons with Developmental Disabilities (PDD).
