A new retirement home aimed seniors in the middle-income bracket is now open in Sherwood Park.

Heartland Housing Foundation’s Silver Birch Haven opened on April 1, 2019 and held its official open house on April 27 to show off the new building, which is attached to Silver Birch Lodge. Saturday’s event saw more than 120 people walk through the facility in a four-hour period.

The new building is designed as an option for seniors who may have a little more money and can’t get into one of the subsidized options. It seems HHF can’t build these facilities quick enough to keep up with the demand of the area’s aging demographic.
