St. Therese Villa is a designated supportive living facility that serves over 200 residents in southern Alberta. It is a multicultural site designed to meet and support resident wellness and independence while providing quality care in a supportive and caring environment. The facility includes 124 private studio suites, 16 couple’s suites and 60 secure dementia suites, each with a private bathroom and shower. Covenant Health is proud of our 150-year history of delivering quality, innovative Catholic health services to Albertans and is one of Canada’s largest Catholic Health organizations. We are honoured to have recently received three prestigious awards: Alberta’s Top 70 Employer award for 2018, Canada’s Most Admired Corporate Culture Award for 2017, and one of the World’s Most Ethical
Companies for 2018. The City of Lethbridge is located 2 hours southeast of Calgary, and 1 ½ hours northwest of the US border. The city’s population has continued to grow steadily over the past 5 years, currently sitting at approximately 100,000, with more than 25% of the adult population under the age of 34. But don’t let the size fool you - its smaller size, lower cost of living and higher quality of life make Lethbridge a great place to live, work, and raise a family. The small city charm, friendly people and warm Chinook winds are second only to our spectacular High Level Bridge.
