Living Livita!

We believe that the status quo just simply isn’t good enough. Every day our community proves that the old ways of senior living can be reimagined. We are committed to ensuring that not only our residents have a comfortable life, but a vibrant one.

About Us

Rydel Management Inc. manages multiple residential buildings in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and more recently under Livita Retirement Residences, we have become Ontario’s newest hub for vibrant seniors living – operating retirement communities in Barrie, Belleville, Oakville, Oshawa and Pickering Ontario. At Livita, we are dedicated to offering some of the best customer service possible for our existing and new residents. Central to this approach are three key mandates; “Resident First”, “Respect in the Workplace” and “Teamwork. These are core values that all of our team members at Livita Retirement Residences are committed to.

Putting our residents first is about making a difference in everything we do. Our residents and the families we serve are our families. It does not matter if a Livita team member works in housekeeping, dietary,enhanced care or maintenance, everything we do must be with the customer first approach. All of us connect with our residents and their families in various and caring ways.

Respect in the workplace fosters a climate we can all thrive in. Great things happen in an environment we all feel good about, we trust each other and we communicate with courtesy.

Teamwork inspires a focus on others. We can always learn and listen to do it better if we work together. This is how we are Living Livita!
