Livita Bridge Street Retirement, Belleville, ON

20+ years at Bridge Street. I love my work because our residents have so much character and life experiences to share. Hailing from
the Maritimes, I know good hospitality and the true appreciation of a foot
thumping fiddle song!

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

    birds and sun.
    Ann G.
  • I feel like this is my home. The people are friendly, and the staff are very 
    lovely and helpful.

  • 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.

The terms nursing home and long-term care home refer to the same type of facility. And yes, despite being a place where older adults live, they differ from retirement homes.

Who can live in a retirement home?

Any older adult can live in a retirement home given that they qualify and can comply with the requirements. For instance, they have to be a certain age, usually 55 years old and over, to join a retirement community. They also must pass the application process to secure a spot at the residence.
