Gain exclusive insight into life at Dr. Hemstock Retirement Residence and Hearthstone Place Verve Senior Living. Comfort Life’s reviews give you exclusive insider information.

Our perspective

This is the destination for Lloydminster and area residents who appreciate the best things in life. Many exceptional highlights make this superior to other retirement residences in the area. The chef-prepared fine dining makes this a great place to host family events; the food is wonderful. The skilled professionals here focus on a holistic approach to health and wellness that includes physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing. The community life here revitalizes residents who find new social connections and a daily selection of activities.

Here, Verve Senior Living brings big-city quality and luxury to Lloydminster. Inside, you'll find a group of seniors who demonstrably feel a social connection to each other. The home encourages friendships through a book club, bingo nights, group exercises, and many other activities that let people stay as busy as they want. Activities like the ice cream social and tai chi are especially engaging, and there are also yoga sessions and games. Seniors here love the communal life and the vibrant atmosphere.

There are also quiet, relaxing times here, too, whether that's in the privacy of your spacious studio or apartment, or relaxing in the library, perusing the collection of books. Spring, summer, and fall outdoor activities include gardening clubs, local hikes, and bird-watching. They look after seniors very well. Trade in housework, clearing ice off the sidewalk in winter, and other tiresome chores for what you might call enhanced independence.

Holly G., family member

I moved my brother here in Feb 2023. The facility is so warm and inviting, clean and bright. I love that they have so many activities for residents including great outings. The staff have gone above and beyond to help us as my brother has an acquired brain injury. Right from the first email till now they have been very helpful and accommodating.

Christina Ross, family member

I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to have my father stay at Hemstock while visiting in Lloydminster. The staff was wonderful, supportive, qualified, kind, and helpful. Hemstock is a lovely, welcoming environment, clean, organized, and accommodating. The staff went above and beyond to make my father's stay and my vacation stress-free and enjoyable.

Rhonda Whitlaw, family member

My mom has been a resident of the Hearthstone for a little over two years. When we first enquired about transitioning her from her home, the team at Hearthstone did everything possible to make her comfortable and the transition was seamless. Fast forward two years, my mom recently fell and broke her hip, the team at Hearthstone is doing everything they can to accommodate her needs through wellness support, meal deliveries and even relocating her so her room will be closer to the dining room. The staff has gone over and above to once again make her transition as smooth as possible. The staff truly cares about the well-being of all the residents. It gives me peace of mind knowing my mom is in good hands.

My husband and I reached out to the Dr. Hemstock facility on behalf of our neighbour who was recovering from major surgery. We were looking and hoping to find a respite room.The staff, ALL of them, opened their arms and basically a Christmas miracle
happened in a very, very short time. Our friend is comfortable and happy.

Cherie Brace, family member

My mother-in-law has been here a few months now and the employees have been fantastic to her. The facility has a very homey atmosphere and she is being well taken care of.

Jackie Payne, family member

Our journey with Hemstock only started in August 2022, it truly wasn’t on our radar that we needed assisted living for my Mother in law until a long hospital stay. We were all hesitant making the move from her home she had lived in for 65 years on the farm to Lloydminster. A quick call with the staff and the opportunity to tour the suites before making the decision was exceptional. They knew I was having as much emotion wrapping my head around this move as our Mom was (to the point they gave me a hug of reassurance). We moved Mom in August 22nd and the suite, care, compassion, meals and residents that share the common areas have been nothing short of amazing. This has been an incredibly easy shift and I can’t recommend it more. I’m grateful Lloydminster has this beautiful facility in our community.

Lois Phillips, family member

The staff at the Dr Hemstock are nothing but AMAZING! They are very friendly, happy, helpful and caring towards the residents. They bend over backwards to take care of my mom, Jean. She loves the staff and says they spoil her with good food. During this Covid lockdown they are covering for all of us who cannot visit family members. My mom did her first ever FaceTime with me this morning thanks to Shannon who set it all up. This is not an easy time but they are keeping the residents healthy and happy. We appreciate all that you do! [posted Aug 2020]
