How much does supportive living cost at Covenant Care?
Residents are responsible for paying their monthly occupancy fees. The fees for supportive living are set by Alberta Health (Government of Alberta) and depend on the suite type. The monthly fee includes all non-medical services (such as meals, housekeeping and spiritual care) and building costs (maintenance, utilities, etc.). These fees do not cover the cost of care, which is funded by Alberta Health. Please visit the Alberta Health website for details on current supportive living fees.
Residents or their designated representatives will be billed monthly by Covenant Care using pre-authorized debit. Residents or their designated representatives are responsible for any additional costs and charges outlined in the Residency Agreement that is signed prior to moving in.
