Livita Centennial, Oshawa, ON

20+ years in the in the hospitality and senior living industry – joining the Centennial team in 2017. I love
my work at the Centennial as it allows me to make a positive impact on people’s lives! Fun fact – I love
to cook with my family, and experiment with different foods and flavours.

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.

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.
