There are a multitude of activities and services available for Hamlet Estates residents ranging from aquatic fitness programming in our therapeutic pool, convenient mobile banking services, and relaxing spa services that enable our residents to maintain their independence, all from within the comfort of their own home.
At Hamlet Estates, we believe in actively creating community amoung our residents. One way that we do this is by offering our residents the option of a home cooked meal, for an additional cost, served in our beautifully decorated communal dining room over at Woodland Towers.
The Woodland Towers Dining Room provides two meals per day, seven days per week and each meal is designed by our Nutrition Services Team to ensure that it meets the dietary needs of our residents.
The following are the set start times for each meal service:
- Noon Meal - 11:45 am
- Evening Meal – 4:45 pm
Recognizing that our resident’s lead busy, active lives, our weekly menu is posted on the main bulletin board in the Prince Unit entrance, allowing our residents the option and flexibility to attend based on their meal preferences and schedules.
Our Certified Seniors Fitness Instructor offers exercise programs designed specifically for Older Adults and those suffering from chronic health conditions.
