Shopping on Brock Road includes Sobey’s, Wal-Mart, LCBO and Dollarama. Grabbing a coffee or eating out could mean Tim Horton’s, Cora’s, Mandarin or Swiss Chalet. There is an abundance of green space, too: just one block over, residents can take a stroll in Village East Park or Diana Princess of Wales Park.

Livita Parkway, Pickering, ON

20+ years of hospitality experience with international hotels. Working at the Parkway is like the
hospitality industry – we make our residents feel at home! I love road trips and exploring our great
country Canada every summer.

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.
