Comfort Life Review


For Hamilton and area seniors who want to enjoy exceptional living, The Meadowlands in Ancaster is the place to be. This residence offers elegance and beauty at every turn. Everything within and without the Meadowlands is focused on providing the very best in independent senior living, through all aspects: the facilities, the staff, and the services. This home features a wonderful meal selection, and each day is filled with activities that keep people active, engaged and social. Some of the local favourites are the heated indoor pool and card games in the party room.

Inside, this residence is loaded with amenities. There's an onsite theatre that seats over 20 people, a swimming pool where you can exercise, play or lounge, and a Family Den complete with piano and library. You'll make many new friends over tea or coffee in one of the two in-house cafes.

Testimonials and Stories

  • Betty Burgess - Resident since 2002

    I moved into The Meadowlands Retirement Residence when it first opened in 2002. From the first day I moved in, I felt a sense of calm and relief, knowing that I had made the right decision about leaving my home. The stress and uncertainty about moving into a retirement home was greatly alleviated by the wonderful staff that made sure that my move into The Meadowlands went smoothly. They took care that I was comfortable and made me feel right at home. The service at The Meadowlands from my daily meals, to housekeeping is superb and just knowing that nursing is available if needed is an added comfort. They have a wonderful meal selection and a large number of daily activities to help keep me active. I can enjoy the exercise classes or a daily swim in the heated indoor pool or play a variety of card games. I enjoy volunteering in the Tuck Shop and even helping out with Bingo. I have made so many new friends and we enjoy getting together for coffee or tea in one of two cafes. I now call The Meadowlands Retirement Residence home. I encourage anyone who has any doubts about retirement living to come in and see what The Meadowlands has to offer.
