The Hamlets at Red Deer opened their doors Feb. 4 to its first Supportive Living residents. The community has eight hamlets within the site that offers care for Supportive Living and Memory Care. Each hamlet is home to 18 residents.
The Hamlets at Red Deer provides 136 supportive living spaces to the community where seniors who have more complex needs, including those with dementia, can receive support for their health and personal needs in a home-like environment.
“We’re a brand new face here in Red Deer County,” said Melissa Flinn, Community Relations Coordinator for H & H Total Care services, which owns and operates The Hamlets.
“We have 72 spaces for designated supportive living, 54 spaces to provide specialized dementia care and 10 other spaces that are private care,” Flinn said. The second phase of the community will see 48 Independent Living Suites open June 3.
All staff are trained in the Gentle Persuasion Approach, which emphasizes that each person with dementia is a unique human being, capable of interacting with the outside world.
H & H Total Care Services is a faith-based company that’s been providing residential care, long-term care management, retirement community management, and specific health care consulting services since 1989. They operate seven Hamlets communities in Alberta and BC.
Whether you choose Independent Living or another type of care, your monthly rent includes all meals, 24-hour healthcare, daily activities, on-site hair salon, theatre and so much more.
“With construction almost complete, we’re focused on providing quality of life for those that are in our care, and becoming a vibrant part of the community,” Flinn said.
The Hamlets at Red Deer is located in Gasoline Alley of Red Deer County.
“There are favourite spots like Glen’s Restaurant and the Tea House, The Donut Mill, Galaxy Cinema, Tim Hortons, and more businesses opening soon. It’s connected to the city but it’s surrounded by farmers’ fields. There’s a lot of good things that come with our location,” Flinn said.
The Grand Opening is set for Friday, June 7 from 1 to 4 p.m. The public is welcome to come out and celebrate with a small ceremony, ribbon cutting, refreshments, live music and more!
