About Aberdeen Gardens

A member of Greenwood Retirement Communities

Located in beautiful west-end Hamilton, Aberdeen Gardens has been a fixture in this community for over 70 years. Some remember this site as the Zimmerknit Factory, some shopped here when it was the site of the local Dominion Grocery Store, and in 2000 Aberdeen Gardens welcomed its first resident.

Now it’s the familiar faces, the friendly faces that you see when you walk in the door.

This building is home to people - it feels cozy, it feels comfortable. Living here gives you the opportunity to have coffee with an old friend every day of the week.

Aberdeen Gardens is full of life – from the beautiful cafe with all day coffee, tea and goodies to enjoy to the well-appointed lounge areas, with cozy spots for visiting. Updates to the Dining Room and outdoor living space has increased the amenity space for everyone’s enjoyment

When you live at Aberdeen Gardens, you can enjoy an Independent Lifestyle with the support you desire to enhance your quality of life. We offer security and peace of mind at great, affordable rates. Take a tour today and see why Aberdeen Gardens is a wonderful life choice!

Comfort Life Review


Focused on providing the best in seniors' care with affordability in mind, this mid-size retirement residence creates a happy community in the heart of old Hamilton. Close to Dundurn Market and conveniently close to the 403, family finds it very easy to visit senior residents at the Gardens. Care includes a call bell system, with registered practical nurses available during the day and PSWs around the clock.

Community is created through card games, social teas and bingo, as well as proximity to walking trails and outings that take residents to local shopping. Suites include a cable TV in the room, and some include a kitchenette for those who still like to prepare their own meals. Pets are welcome here, as long as they fit into the community. Guests are also welcome at communal meals.

Testimonials and Stories

  • Review of Aberdeen Gardens

    My parents have lived at Aberdeen Gardens over a year now coming from an apartment in the city of Hamilton to a unit here. Since both are not in the best of health my mother made the decision to move. Since then she has been able to fit in perfectly by playing bingo, Xbox bowling etc. The care given by Rachel , Maddie, Moira, Nicole and all of the staff to my parents is outstanding. It certainly gives me total peace of mind knowing they are well cared for with regards to their meals, medications, health situations, laundry and housekeeping. All of the staff make a point of knowing each of the residents names as well as their family members they see regularly. The residence is totally well maintained, clean, bright and cheery. There is 
    always something going on with music, games, exercises, etc. as well as a  weekly shuttle for outings if you chose to participate. With every holiday  that comes along Barb the Activity Director decorates the residence  accordingly making the place very cheery and happy. The once a month  birthday celebration is lovely where they have cake and a party atmosphere for residents birthdays throughout each and every month.

    In closing I feel it was the right decision my parents made in choosing to live at Aberdeen Gardens.
