CEO's Message

Hello and thanks for stopping by our corner of the web world! Ocean View is pleased to be a trusted provider of excellence in service in our community for many decades. Being governed by a Board of Directors has enabled our work to be about a charitable “cause” which we have embraced as part of our mission and vision. The Board has developed a social enterprise model of working engaging the entire community in our work and aspirations. The organization has evolved over the past 50 years to embrace the need to change and respond to community needs and expectations.

Our I-CARE values include fostering innovation, providing comfort, promoting autonomy, demonstrating respect, and enabling empowerment are the cornerstone of our work.

Ocean View operates the very first nursing home in Nova Scotia to be granted “Accreditation” by Accreditation Canada in 1974………a standard of excellence that we still celebrate and achieve to this day. Our long term care home provides an array of services for 176 residents and offers 1 respite bed for our community. Individualized care is provided in a safe environment where we are committed to the dignity of taking risks as we age. Staff come from a variety of disciplines in the health professions including regulated nurses, continuing care assistants, recreation programmers, physio and occupational therapy, spiritual care, clinical dietetics, and social work. Ocean View also has an in house full time physician as part of the care team, a noted “leading practise” by Accreditation Canada in nursing home care.  Personal touches and love are also extended by staff in maintenance, food services, laundry, housekeeping, and administrative support staff. Active volunteers, over 100 in number, complement our comfort, care, and compassion in many clinical and non-clinical areas. The Canteen and Hair Salon, part of our commercial services activity, are located in our Home as services for staff and residents.

Our Board of Directors also provides the Governance for our Foundation which raises much needed revenues for our cause and supports and promotes our nursing home and our community based programs and services. They also Govern the Ocean View Serving Seniors Society which provides an array of community based services to allow seniors to age in place in an environment they call home.  These services include an adult day program with future plans for a 50 unit assisted living complex, transportation supports, and various home and community supportive services.

Whether you are here looking for care and services, volunteer opportunities, or paid employment I’m sure you’ll find the right tools and resources at your fingertips. Please feel free to contact us directly by navigating many of the links on the site.
