Darlene Kerr – General Manager

Queens Avenue Retirement, Oakville, Ontario

21+ years at Queens Avenue. I love my work because one kind act a day makes a difference in the lives of our residents. I love to read.
When I start a book, watch out – I cannot put it down.

  • 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.

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