Dr. Hemstock Residence & Hearthstone Place brings big city quality and luxury to Lloydminster. Inside its doors, you'll find a group of seniors who demonstrably feel a social connection to each other. This home encourages friendships through its book club, bingo nights, group exercise and a wide collection of other activities that lets 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. This place instantly rejuvenates with its vibrant atmosphere.
There are also quiet, relaxing times to be found here, whether that's in the privacy of your spacious studio or apartment, or by relaxing in the library perusing the community collection of books. Outside, spring summer and fall activities include gardening clubs, local hikes, bird-watching and more. This is a community that looks after seniors in a wide variety of ways.

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..."
