Our Perspective

How we see Livita Parkway Retirement Residence

Livita’s Parkway Retirement Residence puts the focus on fun and freedom. You liberate yourself from all the tiring aspects of home ownership or condo living – especially loneliness – and live in a community of friends enjoying the freedom of their golden years and continuing to grow. It’s a smaller, more intimate boutique-style community, set in a beautiful, welcoming, mid-rise building, with friendly, helpful staff.

Livita Parkway Retirement Residence is ideal for people who are looking to spice up their social life and who have a history of being open to new experiences. Moving into Parkway is a kind of life hack that helps make things new. The change of scenery revives peoples’ vigour and gives them a new spark. It’s a great way for families to reward parents. A trial stay here gives seniors a window into this life. They’ll enjoy having other people cook meals and do all the housework.

The activities here are the real draw, and there are many enjoyable ways to interact with other people and develop and deepen friendships. These include billiards, clubs, exercise and fitness, musical entertainment, and more. One of the great things about Livita Parkway is just eating together, whether that’s in the dining hall or in the bistro, or outings at local restaurants. Food here is home-style cooking, with many fresh ingredients.

Suits are cozy, clean, and comfortable. Staff know residents and family members by name, and it’s a sign of a great place to retire that many of the staff have been here a long time.
