Besides all the health services offered at Ocean View, we also strive to help residents 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 resident’s personal use allowance or added to their monthly invoice.
The hair salon is located on the second floor of Ocean View. Residents interested in visiting the salon can speak with staff on their neighbourhood to make an appointment. If required, staff will escort residents 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 residents are informed of when he will be onsite for them.
Ocean View recognizes that sometimes available space is limited in the resident rooms and residents 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 resident. Ocean View, however, is pleased to offer our residents telephone, cable and wi-fi internet services through Eastlink. This partnership offers these services to residents 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 residents.
Ocean View’s onsite seamstress is available Monday to Friday from 8 am to 12 pm.
Labelling of resident’s clothing is a service Ocean View provides for residents. 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 resident and/or family member for these services and charges will be incorporated into your regular monthly billing cycle.
Family Council is a group of family members and friends of the residents of Ocean View who meet four times a year. The function is to address any problems or concerns that may arise for the residents, provide a safe and friendly environment for family members to discuss these concerns and to help find a solution. Family Council also provides educational opportunities about various illnesses and other important issues with aging and long term care living. It provides support for families through informal discussions and shared experiences.
If you would like more information, please visit our Family Council bulletin board on the 1st floor in the sunroom for meeting dates/times, upcoming education sessions and general information. You can also check out the links below to access resources and meeting minutes.
