Our Services

Our home may be an option if you are either supporting a loved one in the Foothills Hospital, Tom Baker Cancer Centre or Alberta Children's Hospital - or - if you are in town for some form of treatment. It is an especially good fit if you need transportation to and from the hospital, are elderly or want the comfort of feeling like you are among friends in a family home!

Shared guest bathroom, close to bedrooms

Rooms can be locked while you sleep or are away

A choice of a hot or cold breakfast

Our rate is $85 / night for one room or $135 / night for the use of both rooms.

We are open to hosting both short and long term guests.  These rates include:

We also offer rides to and from a NW hospital for only $15/return trip.

Our guests love this service and find that it helps them feel extra safe and cared for - especially when they are nervous to drive in Calgary or when the winter snow arrives! 

Contact us to check for availability in one or both of our 2 guest rooms.  


Contact Form

For families with children:  Families with children will need to book both rooms and will be considered on a case by case basis.  (We are grandparents - so yes... we have toys, books, movies and space for kids to play outside!)  If one of our rooms is already being used, we will not be able to accommodate you. Most of our guests are going through a fair bit of stress, so it is important for us to maintain a calm and peaceful home environment for them to relax in.  If we are unable to accommodate you, we suggest you talk to the Family Resource Centre staff at the ACH about the possibility of staying at the Ronald McDonald House.  If  they are full and you need to find a hotel - make sure you ask the hotel for their "medical rate".  

About us

Brenda has worked at the Foothills Hospital as a physical therapist and Dave has had a kidney removed due to cancer. We've "been there, done that" and know that right now you just need privacy, a place to sleep, a healthy meal to start your day and a way to get to and from the hospital. We are just 10 minutes away from the NW medical facilities and are offering to help you with those basic needs.  

The services we offer have been approved through the City of Calgary, Alberta Health Services and through our insurance company based on bed and breakfast regulations.  Our home is a pet free and smoke free environment.  

Who we host:

We only host people who are in Calgary due to a medical situation.  Most of our guests are family members who are supporting someone who is a patient in the hospital.  People who are in town to receive care or to attend medical appointments are also welcome to stay with us, as long as they are either able to be independent with their physical and medical care, or they have arranged to have a support person stay with them to assist them.

We welcome you as our guest if you are:

  • able to climb 3 steps to enter our home; there is a hand rail on the front steps. 

  • independent with your physical and medical care; seniors will find it easy to move about in our home, as it is on one level.

  • free from infection and colds.

  • willing to wash your hands and sanitize your phone each time you enter our home; thank you for your understanding on this matter, as we host many immune suppressed guests.
