Benefits of Senior Independent Living in Red Deer, Alberta

Posted on February 27th, 2022

For those looking around for a senior independent living situation in Alberta, Red Deer is a great place to hang your hat. Our senior independent living choice in Red Deer is called The Hamlets at Red Deer, and it is designed to offer care and assisted living for those needing help with dementia.

Red Deer is about halfway between Calgary and Edmonton. This location means that both cities are easily accessible both for those wanting to go there and also for those wanting to come to Red Deer from either Calgary or Edmonton. There is excellent access to major transportation routes and a commercial airport in Red Deer.

One of the big advantages of Red Deer is that it is a much smaller town than Calgary or Edmonton, with a slower pace of life and less traffic. In addition, Red Deer is located right on the banks of the Red Deer River, which means there is plenty of parkland and nature all around. There are hundreds of acres of walking trails and the availability of outdoor activities, including Bower Ponds and the Gaetz Lakes Migratory Bird Sanctuary.

Also, the cost of living is a few percent less in Red Deer than in Calgary or Edmonton. For that reason, and a beneficial local tax situation, many businesses have chosen Red Deer for locating their businesses.

Most importantly, The Hamlets at Red Deer honours every resident in our environment. We respect the sanctity of life and the integrity of our residents. If you explore what we have to offer, you will find a warm and loving environment for seniors.
