List of retirement communities in Hamilton and area

Burlington, Ontario

  • Tansley Woods is ideal for a variety of people. Older adults who currently live alone love that they can have all their housework and meals taken care of, and they can find friends to talk to just outside the door. For seniors who are advancing in age, there are customized levels of care focused exactly on their needs. The community and the care offered here are truly unique here. Walk in here, and it will change your mind about seniors' homes, forever.
  • The facility is beautiful. The staff is outstanding. The food is wonderful. There is no better place

  • Wentworth Heights is the perfect fit for Hamilton area seniors who miss the old days when you knew your neighbours and everyone you met had a friendly "Hello." The village concept is truly unique and has to be experienced to be appreciated. Staff and residents love life in the village.
  • [Since moving here in April 2019], our parent's experience has been [nothing but] positive ... The s

  • 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.
  • Flexible! They work with you to [help you] understand the challenges of when life changes. They were

Ancaster, Ontario

  • This retirement residence is ideal for Hamilton area seniors who love living well. Aspects that help rejuvenate residents range from fine dining to the swimming pool, and from social activities galore to the up-to-date construction. For all the wonderful features, the happiness of the people puts this community over the top. The Meadowlands is also wonderfully located, central to the Golden Horseshoe, where family from across the province can easily visit.
  • I meet new people in the hall or in the lounge or wherever you are, and they're all just such good p
Hamilton, Ontario

  • There are many great things to say about St. Elizabeth Village, but one unique aspect of this community is residents' ability to leverage the market value of the home they purchase, through the community's life lease program. Given that real estate values rise steadily in Hamilton (especially on the mountain) this gives you the best of both worlds: the security and freedom of 55 plus living, along with the equity you'll build up from your investment in your home here.
  • We were able to make it our home quite painlessly and we were really happy that renovations were i
Burlington, Ontario

  • One thing apparent about Heritage Place is that there’s always something to do here. People here love the daily brain fitness activity. There’s a slate of things to do every day, including card games, yoga, movies, shopping trips, workshops, live music and the list goes on. (Of course, you also have the privacy of your own condo.) The rich social aspect of living here makes it worth moving away from a traditional family home. We see it as an ideal bridge between typical active lifestyle communities and independent living for seniors.
  • My mom has been [here, almost since it opened] ... Both her mental health and her physical health ha
Hamilton, Ontario

  • If we were to highlight one exceptional aspect of Caroline Place, it would have to be the food, offered in rich variety. We’re impressed with the choices! You can sample the buffet, where there are creative entrees to choose from, prepared by the in-house chef. Meals are also very well-balanced, special diets are accounted for, and throughout the day, you’ll find snacks and fruit available in the café. And there’s always someone to share the moment with, whether that’s a fellow senior or one of the caring, enthusiastic staff.
  • From the first day mom arrived she was made to feel extremely welcome. There is such a warm, friendl

  • The Wellington offers a unique combination of affordability and luxury amenities in an older area of the city. This established community offers a built-in familiarity that Hamilton seniors will warm up to quickly. We love its holistic approach to senior living, from its pet-friendly policy to the staff, who bring a tell-tale enthusiasm to their work. The unique combination of independent living with long term care makes it ideal for couples with varying needs to stay together in one community.

  • The owners of Grandview Retirement Living are known for the pride they take in state-of-the-art buildings that are characterized by an attention to detail. Expect professionalism from a caring staff and enjoy exceptional services in a place you can call “home”.

  • The beautiful natural environment around St. Elizabeth Retirement Resident, set in a sprawling 114 acre property, makes this a truly unique senior living experience among Hamilton retirement homes. The entire village is really all about catering to the desires of an older crowd, carried over to the retirement residence here as well. You’ll find comfort here, along with detail-oriented care provided by staff, and the promotion of a healthy, vibrant lifestyle.
