Why the time is right for senior living in Red Deer

Envisioning a retirement community where seniors thrive today, and tomorrow

2020 began as a year of promise, a new decade with many analogies to 20/20 vision. What no one saw coming was a global pandemic that would impact every aspect of our lives, from the way we grocery shop, to how we ‘go’ to work, from saying hello to perhaps most importantly, caring for and protecting our vulnerable loved ones.

As we look forward to 2021 and the reality of our ‘new’ normal sinks in, The Hamlets at Deer Park is ready to support you and your family as we learn to live with COVID as part of our regular life so no one needs to be isolated.

Is it an appropriate time to look at a Senior Living Community?

The answer is a resounding “YES!” says Community Relations Co-ordinator Jaime Riggins.

The majority of Senior Living Communities have remained outbreak-free and are the BEST place for seniors during a pandemic. Why? Mitigating the threat of COVID-19 is a full-time job. Senior Living Communities have an entire team of dedicated and trained employees who diligently monitor and implement strict medical and health orders to ensure all our residents are safe, Riggins explains.

The Hamlets at Deer Park offers an excellent opportunity for social interaction with peers that feeds residents’ emotional and spiritual health.

With all the isolation, restrictions and limitations we’ve experienced this year, what does Senior Retirement Living look like during COVID?

“We’ve modified many aspects of daily living routines to protect our residents from COVID while maintaining activities and socialization that are so vital to mental, emotional, and physical well-being,” Riggins says. “From freshly prepared meals to entertainment, exercise to family visits, ingenuity has created amazing moments and memories for our residents and their families.”

With a variety of options for senior retirement living, why choose The Hamlets?

“Our Senior Living Communities are designed to assist our residents with their daily needs and with staff who are trained to watch closely for physical, mental and spiritual health changes,” Riggins notes, noting The Hamlets also offers an excellent opportunity for social interaction with peers that feeds residents’ emotional and spiritual health. Balanced nutritional meals and scheduled exercise activities also ensure physical health is properly supported.

As a Canadian-based, family-owned and run company The Hamlets brings families more than 30 years of experience in the senior living industry.
