Our story begins with the historic Chinese United Church, a place of worship that allowed Chinese immigrants in and around the Calgary area, to come together to practice their Christian faith and to have fellowships with one another.
In 2012, Oi Kwan Place, a new residence for retirement living, was built while the church gymnasium behind it was torn down. However, the historical Chinese United Church was preserved and remains an integral amenity of Oi Kwan Place to allow residents to conveniently participate in church activities. In 2014, Oi Kwan Place was re-branded as Clover Living to mark a stronger community focus and the commitment to its founding values. Since then, Clover Living has provided affordable independent and supportive living accommodation choices for Chinese seniors to enjoy life in retirement in a culturally designed, comfortable and safe community.
Clover Living is best designed to serve the needs of Calgary’s Asian seniors, with staff being able to speak in English, Mandarin and Cantonese. Meals and events are also carefully curated to facilitate and respect each residents’ cultural background, which helps foster a positive and inclusive environment within our community.
At the heart of Calgary’s Chinatown, Clover Living is a vibrant community, which provides a carefree, resort-like lifestyle that accommodates both independent and supportive living for seniors aged 55 and older. Our community is perfectly situated where residents have access to the beautiful Bow River and Sien Lok Park, while being close to amenities such as banks, restaurants, and grocery stores, all of which are just steps away from the residence.
