Location is an important factor to consider when making the choice to retire. Your chosen location can affect how often you are visited by family and friends and it is well documented that frequent visits are important for a senior’s mental and emotional well being. As well, being in close proximity to the resident can alleviate stressors for family members should a problem arise.
The Hamlets at Cedarwood is located just north of Calgary Alberta in the delightful city of Airdrie Alberta. A self-contained city, it has many recreational activities, services and health services, which makes it a perfect spot for retirees. You get all of the benefits of living in a slower paced city, yet Calgary is simply a short distance away, making it easy to get to for services not found in Airdrie. For seniors wanting to retire away from the hustle and bustle of city life, Airdrie offers a beautiful location.
The city offers many natural attractions such as parks, which are beautiful to visit in both the summer and winter. Nose Creek Park which covers a large area in the centre of the city, has a beautiful pond featuring a fountain and viewing platform. Paved walkways are all around the park, making it a perfect spot for seniors to stroll.
With the beautiful summers and fall in the Calgary region, Airdrie is home to the beautiful Woodside Golf Course which has 18 holes for golfing. If golfing isn’t your thing, Airdrie’s Shamrock lanes offers 5 and 10-pin bowling with other recreational activities such as pool tables and dartboards inside. There is not a shortage of indoor or outdoor activities for seniors living near Calgary.
The Hamlets at Cedarwood Station offer a great choice for senior residential care. If you are living in Calgary but are looking for a smaller community to belong to, senior living in Airdrie just may be the right choice for you.
