Our Perspective

How we see Dr. Hemstock Retirement Residence and Hearthstone Place by Verve

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.
