Our Perspective

How we see Aberdeen Gardens

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. Over the years, we've met or heard of a number of residents who have been here for several years. That tells us that they thrive—and they enjoy their lives here. LEV Senior Living has a reputation across the province for providing great care.

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.

During COVID and in the post-pandemic era, this community generated a lot of grateful reviews from families for the care they provide for seniors here. Our personal experience with Aberdeen Gardens is that it's part of a well-run company, who, from the executive team through to kitchen staff and PSWs are enthusiastic, passionate, and caring. Take a tour, talk to people here, and find out for yourself.

Reviews of Aberdeen Gardens

What residents and their loved ones say about Aberdeen Gardens in reviews.

Edward Barry, family member

"If you have a loved one or you yourself are looking for a place for assisted retirement living. Look no further, you will not find a more caring and helpful staff than here. We had my father in law here and he was very nervous about going to live in assisted living. He loved it here, the residents are happy and friendly. The staff and management do an amazing job. There are not enough words to say how appreciative we are of Aberdeen Gardens."

Don Patterson, family member

"In my opinion, the care and support the staff at Aberdeen Gardens provided for my mom over the past 3 1/2 + years, went above and beyond retirement home expectations.Dealing with individuals with dementia is difficult at the best of times and far more difficult having the Covid pandemic thrown into the mix. I recognize the challenge it was for my mom to receive each of her Covid inoculations. Thank you for persevering to ensure she received both vaccines. I could not have asked for a better ho..."

Dave Page, family member

"Aberdeen Gardens Cares. My Uncle Has Been There Since October Of 2016 And Has Enjoyed Everybody. He Is The Best I Have Seen Him Years. Thankyou Aberdeen Gardens And The Wonderful Staff That Have Been Looking After Him."

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.
