Relaxed Residential Much has changed in residential living for Winnipeg seniors. A good case in point is Sterling House at 909 Wilkes Avenue in the heart of Linden Woods. Built about a decade ago, this facility is all about choices and easy lifestyle options. “We make it simple by removing the heavy lifting from people’s lives,” says the marketing director for Homestead Manitoba, the locally based company behind Sterling House. “Forget the snow shovel and pot scrapers, we take care of the details that let our residents get on with the things they enjoy.” The building offers 117 suites in five layouts that feature one and two bedroom formats with square footage from 600 sq. ft. to over 900 sq. ft. Each suite comes with balcony, storage and on floor laundry facilities, as well as weekly housekeeping. They also provide senior specific exercise programs and a multi purpose room where residents have the opportunity to come down for things like a movie night with friends or a morning Wii bowling match. Important is the well-considered meal program. At Sterling House, residents may decide to opt out of this service, choosing to dine only a few time a month and pay cash like any restaurant patron. However, if they elect to take advantage of the brunch and dinner program, what they find is not only delicious, but nutritious

and tailored to their individual needs and tastes as well. “Having the option to let us do the cooking and the dishes is just one more way we make life a bit easier,” says Homestead Manitoba’s Marketing Director. “We have a highly seasoned team in our kitchens that understand seniors and can adapt menus for things like

reduced sodium, gluten sensitivity, blood sugar and other health related dietary aspects. Often families tell us that the program has helped put mom or dad back on the right track with solid nutrition. Our residents tell us the menus are delicious.” Visit for more information.
