This tight-knit, friendly community is ideal for seniors who want a home in Hamilton. Situated close to the highway and to downtown, there's just enough shopping and liveliness in the area. Residents live happily and healthily: one resident turned 104 in late 2016, and another couple once celebrated their 68th anniversary in the community.



Comfortably Hamilton community

Focused on providing the best in seniors' care with affordability in mind, this mid-size retirement residence creates a happy community in the heart of old Hamilton. Close to Dundurn Market and conveniently close to the 403, family finds it very easy to visit senior residents at the Gardens. Care includes a call bell system, with registered practical nurses available during the day and PSWs around the clock.

Community is created through card games, social teas and bingo, as well as proximity to walking trails and outings that take residents to local shopping. Suites include a cable TV in the room, and some include a kitchenette for those who still like to prepare their own meals. Pets are welcome here, as long as they fit into the community. Guests are also welcome at communal meals.

What people say about Aberdeen Gardens


Flexible! They work with you to [help you] understand the challenges of when life changes. They were a great fit. The management is amazing.

My [mom was here] for 10 months before going into long term care. The staff at Aberdeen Gardens is amazing; they genuinely care [and] are friendly and accommodating ... The rooms are large and clean, the entertainment is excellent and the monthly birthday parties are fun.

My parents have lived at Aberdeen Gardens over a year now coming from an apartment in the city of Hamilton to a unit here. Since both are not in the best of health my mother made the decision to move. Since then she has been able to fit in perfectly by playing bingo, Xbox bowling etc. The care given by Rachel , Maddie, Moira, Nicole and all of the staff to my parents is outstanding. It certainly gives me total peace of mind knowing they are well cared for with regards to their meals, medications

Review of Aberdeen Gardens

My parents have lived at Aberdeen Gardens over a year now coming from an apartment in the city of Hamilton to a unit here. Since both are not in the best of health my mother made the decision to move. Since then she has been able to fit in perfectly by playing bingo, Xbox bowling etc. The care given by Rachel , Maddie, Moira, Nicole and all of the staff to my parents is outstanding. It certainly gives me total peace of mind knowing they are well cared for with regards to their meals, medications, health situations, laundry and housekeeping. All of the staff make a point of knowing each of the residents names as well as their family members they see regularly. The residence is totally well maintained, clean, bright and cheery. There is always something going on with music, games, exercises, etc. as well as a weekly shuttle for outings if you chose to participate. With every holiday that comes along Barb the Activity Director decorates the residence accordingly making the place very cheery and happy. The once a month birthday celebration is lovely where they have cake and a party atmosphere for residents birthdays throughout each and every month. In closing I feel it was the right decision my parents made in choosing to live at Aberdeen Gardens.

My mum is currently staying at Aberdeen Gardens and they have been wonderful. She has been well looked after and has made friends. The home is organized,clean, the meals are great and the staff is caring. I am so grateful for their care of my mum during this pandemic.

My father-in-law has been a resident at Aberdeen Gardens since October 2019. Our family could not be more pleased with the excellent service provided by their extraordinary staff. They care about each and every resident to ensure they are well looked after and happy. This has never been more important than during the COVID 19 crisis.

Aberdeen Cares! Google review by Ron (late 2020)

My father-in-law has been a resident at Aberdeen Gardens since October 2019. Our family could not be more pleased with the excellent service provided by their extraordinary staff. They care about each and every resident to ensure they are well looked after and happy. This has never been more important than during the COVID 19 crisis. I was impressed with the numerous protocols put in place well ahead of government directives. We receive regular communications from the Executive Director about any issues or new guidelines. With all of the recent unfortunate news about certain retirement homes, we have peace of mind knowing he is safe and treated like a member of their family. Each and every request is looked after in an appropriate and timely manner, and they do not hesitate to make recommendations to improve his level of care. We will always remember the head chef telling us to watch what happens after 3 weeks, and indeed he looked and felt much better as his diet and medicines were carefully managed. This may not be the most expensive retirement home in the Hamilton region, but is the best managed, with the very best staff. We are grateful to every member of the Aberdeen Garden’s team for looking after my father-in-law so well. Though moving loved ones from their home is always a difficult decision, we are now enjoying more quality time together with him as his daily needs are taken care of. We wish that he had moved their sooner.

Aberdeen Gardens Cares. My Uncle Has Been There Since October Of 2016 And Has Enjoyed Everybody. He Is The Best I Have Seen Him Years. Thankyou Aberdeen Gardens And The Wonderful Staff That Have Been Looking After Him.
—Dave Page, family member

In my opinion, the care and support the staff at Aberdeen Gardens provided for my mom over the past 3 1/2 + years, went above and beyond retirement home expectations.Dealing with individuals with dementia is difficult at the best of times and far more difficult having the Covid pandemic thrown into the mix. I recognize the challenge it was for my mom to receive each of her Covid inoculations. Thank you for persevering to ensure she received both vaccines. I could not have asked for a better ho

I recognize the challenge it was for my mom to receive each of her Covid inoculations. Thank you for persevering to ensure she received both vaccines.
I could not have asked for a better home for my mom to have been in, during the pandemic and especially with her declining mental health. It was evident that the staff put the health and welfare of my mom and the other residents as a top priority.
A big heartfelt thanks!
