Besides all the health services offered at Ocean View, we also strive to help clients easily access things that make their lives easier and more enjoyable.
A licensed hairdresser is available on premises, offering a range of hair care services at a nominal charge. Barbering service for the gentlemen is available for a modest fee. Hair care services can be charged to the client’s personal use allowance or added to their monthly invoice.
The hair salon is located on the second floor of Ocean View. Clients interested in visiting the salon can speak with staff on their neighbourhood to make an appointment. If required, staff will escort clients to and from their appointments.
The hair salon is open Monday to Friday, from 10 am to 2 pm, and Saturday from 9 am to 1 pm. The barber visits on a regular basis and clients are informed of when he will be onsite for them.
Ocean View recognizes that sometimes available space is limited in the client rooms, and clients and families struggle with recycling seasonal clothing and other personal items.
We have purchased lockers that are now assembled in our tunnels that are available for rent from the Maintenance Department. The locker fees are $25 per month would be incorporated into regular monthly billings.
Lockers are available on a first come first serve basis and a signed rental agreement is required. Please see the neighbourhood maintenance staff with any rental inquiries.
Please note: these lockers are not intended for daily access and are only to be used for longer term storage needs (occasional access).
Telephone, internet and cable service are the responsibility of the client. Ocean View, however, is pleased to offer our clients telephone, cable and wi-fi internet services through Eastlink. This partnership offers these services to clients at a lower rate than services from other external service providers, as well as generating revenue for the Ocean View Foundation. These funds are then directly used for the benefit of Ocean View and it’s clients.
Ocean View’s onsite seamstress is available Monday to Friday from 8 am to 12 pm.
Labelling of client’s clothing is a service Ocean View provides for clients. Upon admission and as new clothing is purchased, please ensure you or your family facilitate the labelling of it. “Seamstress forms” are available for you or your family to fill out at the reception desk and at all nursing stations. Please bring your clothing and completed seamstress form to the reception desk.
Charges will apply for additional services, such as hemming of pants and general alterations to clothing. Approval will be required by the client and/or family member for these services and charges will be incorporated into your regular monthly billing cycle.
