Independent Living

Heritage Heights

Heritage Heights

Built-in 2012, Heritage Heights is the newest “green” addition to the South Country Village community. Our modern design boasts geothermal exchange and photovoltaics energy sources that promote energy efficiencies.

Heritage Heights is a 40-suite, self-contained building that provides residents with convenience and independent living.  Each suite is self-contained and includes 1-2 bedrooms, kitchen, living room and an outside deck.  For those residents who require scheduled support with personal grooming activities, Home Care collaborates with the resident to satisfy any unmet needs.

Heritage Heights is a Life Lease Community in which South Country Village retains ownership of the structure and residents purchase the ability to occupy the suite for their lifetime or until they choose to end the agreement.  This type of contract allows residents to have a stake in the community, without the worry and hassle that goes along with traditional home-ownership or rental accommodations.  When you decide to sell, you will have peace of mind knowing that your investment is secure and not subject to the current market fluctuations.  This hassle-free option is further proof that Heritage Heights is a great choice for active adults.


Garden Estates

The Garden Estates are another one of South Country Villages’ senior independent living options.  Located centrally within our campus, these suites are ideal for seniors who are able to live alone and want the independence that comes with having a private suite.   When health support is required, Garden Estates residents can access scheduled Home Care services as they see fit at no cost.


As part of the larger South Country Village community, residents living in the Garden Estates have easy access to a variety of services that many of our other independent residents enjoy.  These services can include light housekeeping, recreation activities, and access to flexible and affordable meal packages.  Each suite boasts a full kitchen, in-suite washer and dryer and on-site parking.

The Garden Estates Suites are truly designed for people who want to age in place and remain in their homes for as long as possible.  Because these are independent suites, residents can welcome private caregivers into their homes to support and maintain their health and meet their functional needs.

Garden Apartments

We know that the costs associated with moving and getting set up in a new home can be immense.  For those with limited income, the Garden Apartments are an affordable way to have all the amenities you want without breaking the bank. 

South Country Village is proud to offer a Seniors Affordable Housing options to the residents of Medicine Hat and area.  We partner with Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) to access potential rental subsidies on behalf of our residents.

Each suite has an outdoor patio and private bathroom, full kitchen and access to communal laundry facilities.  Parking is available for those who have a car and we take care of all major utilities.
