Health and Wellness

Claresholm is a hub of health and wellness for all ages. We have the Claresholm Medical Centre and a General Hospital. For seniors, we have a Drop-In Centre, a number of assisted living senior homes, as well as the Willow Creek Continuing Care Centre. There are special treatment facilities for mental health and addictions, and our FCSS is always there to help local residents with their needs. A variety of local businesses also promote wellness through fitness centres, workout programs, personal trainers, and retail products and support to complement your healthy lifestyle!
