Our Story


In 1964, a group of community-minded and caring volunteers set about to open a special care home to fill a need to care for the ageing population.

These volunteers saw that communities were changing and there was a need to provide care for ageing people. Regina Lutheran Home opened its doors that year as a special care home and continues to operate today.


Our goal is to offer opportunities for individuals of all ages to live their best life – a life worth living with meaning, purpose and choice. We do this by eliminating the plagues of loneliness, helplessness and boredom.

Every day, we create communities of people who are connected, fulfilled and secure. Beyond today, it is our vision that by 2025, Eden Care Communities will be known for our community-based, integrated, intergenerational, inclusive and innovative service delivery culture and model of care and support.

Known For Our Community Service

We will be known for our community service based on passion, principles and person-directed care in the pursuit of excellence. We will be known as builders. We will be the “option”. We will lead others in the enhancement and promotion of person centered and person directed care.

We will be collaborating with a broad array of national, provincial, regional, municipal, for-profit and not-for-profit service providers to provide best in class evidence-based care service to an intergenerational community throughout the birth to death life cycle.

Empowering, Innovative, & Dedicated

We will provide intergenerational care services across the broadest spectrum of care to residents of all cultures, faiths, beliefs, social strata and ages. Our homes and programs will provide best in class long-term care service including respite, palliative and hospice services. These same non-segregated homes will provide young adult housing and cater to disabilities for that age group.

We will be known as advocates and navigators in addition to providing care services to the vulnerable. Our care team will be empowering, innovative and dedicated to promoting increased quality of life and growth. We will be one of the nation’s employers of choice in the provision of intergenerational care services.

Expanding Our Reach

Since 1964, Eden Care Communities has expanded its reach across the province with a broad spectrum of homes, care and support. The organization has grown from serving 62 individuals in a year to over 1,200 now.

From one city to three and now with over 400 employees, Eden Care Communities is one of Saskatchewan’s largest charities.


Eden Care Communities is governed by a volunteer board of directors who represent a cross-section of communities. As leaders of one of Saskatchewan’s largest charities, they commit their time and experience with the intent of ensuring our strategic vision is fulfilled.
