Reviews of Livita Bridge Street Retirement Residence

Gain exclusive insight into life at Livita Bridge Street Retirement Residence. Comfort Life’s reviews give you exclusive insider information.

Our perspective

When parents or loved ones age, we want the best for them, to live in a place where they feel fully comfortable and have a good life. Livita Bridge Street offers just that for people, a charming place that feels right for many of the residents there. Its beautifully unique architecture makes it an appealing place for seniors but the life they live here is what makes Bridge Street wonderful.

While suites here are cozy and comfortable, it’s important to remember that the entire building is your home. As such, there are lots of things to do throughout your home, from social programs to clubs in-house, games together, crafts, and outings. There’s outdoor gardening in summer, as well as barbecues. The courtyard onto which a number of sites face is delightful for residents, with its bright lighting, gardens, and many different flowers. There's even a beauty salon!

Dining here is enjoyable and delicious, with an emphasis on fresh food and home-style cooking. The menu focuses on locally sourced food. It’s a short walk to the local market and downtown Belleville. There’s a full life to be lived at Bridge Street, all of it tailored to people just like you.

For all of that, everyone will tell you that the best thing about living here is the staff, who are caring, deeply personable, and always looking out for the best for those in their care. They become like family to seniors here. Livita Bridge Street is a delightful, charming place for seniors that gives them a fresh new outlook on life.

Giselle Bichon, family member

It is so easy to write a positive review for Bridge Street Retirement Home. This home is always clean & fresh with a very home-like atmosphere. Being cozy and quaint makes it ideal for anyone to feel happy and comfortable here.
My mother has been residing here for a little over a year. Everyone is so kind, loving and caring. I visit often and have felt close to everyone, workers and even some other residents. It's the atmosphere, the warmth, the positivity that seems to flow through the veins of everyone associated with this home.
I can't single out anyone in particular as I find everyone to be completely wonderful. This includes, office staff, nurses, PSWs, cleaners, cooks, front desk personnel, everyone!

Colin Boyd, family member

The staff has been outstanding from day one, very caring and considerate. The professional atmosphere starts with the management staff and continues through all the other departments, as a primary caregiver it is comforting to know Mum is in a caring place.

Donna McTaggart, family member

My 96 year old father lives at Bridge Street Retirement Residence. He moved in almost 1 year ago at the beginning of the pandemic. We could not be happier with all of the staff and the residence itself. Dad being there gives me great peace of mind-and the level of care is incredible. I know he is well taken care of which means a lot to me.

Glenn Lidstone, family member

My mother was fortunate to stay at Bridge Street Retirement Residence for a number of years. It's truly a gem among retirement residences, located very close to downtown Belleville. For seniors that have good mobility, this is a definite plus. My mother's mobility wasn't that great and unfortunately she didn't enjoy walks downtown as other residents of Bridge Street Retirement Residence did. But she did very much like living there. The staff are wonderful and make you feel like your at home. They take the time to get to know you and I certainly felt that they cared. The food was excellent at Bridge Street Retirement Residence as well, and that, of course, is very important.

Madalyne R., resident

Bridge Street Retirement has everything one could want – location, a five minute walk to the market place, banks and the centre of downtown. You will find professional staff, second to none. I like living here and so would you.

Peter N., resident

I would highly recommend Livita Retirement Residences. As soon as you enter Livita Retirement Residences, you will find yourself in a very welcoming lobby. The recent renovations on the main floor, which include a sitting area with a fireplace, as well as a bistro, are very inviting. The apartments are spacious and well laid out. The best part of Livita Retirement Residences is the staff! All of the staff, including housekeeping, kitchen, administration, and especially the PSW and nursing care staff have become like family. The attention to personal safety and well-being is highly apparent. During this uncertain time, I had full confidence in the goings on of Livita Retirement Residences.

Annetta M., resident

I feel like this is my home. The people are friendly, and the staff are very lovely and helpful.

Ann G., resident

I love my room, it is perfect! It faces the courtyard with all the flowers, birds and sun.

Mary Ann C., resident

The staff are friendly, and my room feels like home.

Janet S., resident

I really enjoy the activities here. I love to play scrabble, do crafts and easy exercises. I love to go for walks everyday with my little dog Maggie. Having Maggie with me has been very good for my health.
