Resident & visitor information

We believe that visits from family members and friends contribute greatly to the quality of life of our residents and welcome visitors at St. Therese Villa.

The following guidelines will help you make your visit as pleasant as possible:

  • Please respect all visitors, staff and residents.
  • Visitors of all ages are welcome. We ask that children be supervised by an adult at all times. There is a playground outside for children to use under adult supervision.
  • To maintain resident confidentiality, please do not enter administrative areas.
  • Check with a nurse before bringing food or drink to residents.
  • The attending physician must approve medications brought into the centre.

Stop the spread of germs

  • For the safety of our residents, we encourage you to clean your hands when you visit. See A Guide to Clean Hands for information on protecting yourself and your loved ones.
  • If you’re sick, it's best to wait and visit your loved one when you’re feeling better. If you must visit and you’re coughing or sneezing, consider wearing a mask to protect your loved one.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, and then discard the tissue. If you don’t have a tissue, sneeze or cough into your upper sleeve or elbow.
  • Clean your hands frequently with soap and water or hand sanitizer, especially after coughing or sneezing.

Update to Designated Family/Support Person and Visitor Access

Covenant Health acknowledges the social nature of care and the role of family as an integral dimension of the patient and resident experience. Therefore, at Covenant Health there is a presumption in favour of family presence as the standard of care.

Exceptions are necessary when patient, resident and staff safety, quality, privacy and other factors determine limitations.

Refer to the Designated Family/Support Person and Visitor Policy for more information about access and visitation.


Free visitor parking is available, including accessible stalls, in the parking lot in front of the building. We ask that visitors and residents don’t park in the marked fire access areas.

Our founders

Throughout their years of service, the Sisters of St. Martha have touched the lives of thousands of Southern Albertans by responding to those in need. The Sisters opened their first hospital, St. Michael’s General Hospital (now called St. Michael’s Health Centre), in Lethbridge on June 1, 1929.

The Sisters opened St. Therese Villa in 2009 to meet the Lethbridge community’s growing long-term care needs. When it was first opened, St. Therese Villa housed 216 supportive-living beds, the largest number beds in Alberta at the time. Today, St. Therese Villa carries on the legacy of the Sisters of St. Martha by providing compassionate long-term care in an environment that nurtures the residents’ minds, bodies and spirits.
