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.
