Joan and George Smith. AGES: 69 and 75. BACKGROUND: The couple moved from a single-family home in High River to Calvanna VillageOkotoks for the maintenance-freedom — and lock-itand-leave-it lifestyle — in the 50-plus complex. “It’s the ideal location,” says Joan. “It’s an easy walk everywhere, from the downtown district (just across the bridge), to shopping, banking and restaurants.” And the seniors’ centre is right behind the complex, says George. But the “best thing is that there’s no work involved and it’s so easy to go on holidays,” says Joan. “We have our freedom and don’t have to worry about anything. We can do what we want to do.” The couple also enjoys the active social club that has been formed by the residents of the complex. “The residents are a really good group of people,” says George. BUILDER/DEVELOPER: Calvanna Villages under The Swan Group. POSSESSION DATE: July 2008.
