Amenities

There are a number of services at The Wexford Residences that are for the use of the full spectrum of our clients. Tenants, residents and ASC members are welcome to take full advantage of them.

Dining Room/Meal Service

One of the many positive features of The Wexford is its dramatic two-story main dining room with its wooden art deco ceiling, surrounded by windows on two sides.

Tenants can also arrange to eat meals in the main dining room on a first come, first serve basis or pick up a meal to eat in their own apartments. Arrangements are made through the receptionist.

Gift Shop

A Gift Shop manned by volunteers operates on the main level of The Wexford, selling items such as candy, cards, small gifts and souvenirs.

Coffee Kiosk

Come and enjoy a cup of coffee, muffin, tea biscuits or donut. The café also serves soup and sandwich special, fruit, milk and bread. The volunteers are responsible for the daily operations of the café with support from the Wexford staff.

Library

Located in the activity room.

Mending Service

A mending service is provided by the Wexford Volunteers the first Wednesday of every month from 1:30-3:30pm. This service is located on the mezzanine level.

Hair Salon

A Beauty Salon is located on the activity level and appointments can be made at the reception desk. Services are provided by two different stylists who are currently available two days per week.

Foot Care Clinic

A Foot Care Clinic is available once every two weeks. The receptionist schedules the appointments.

Optometrist

An optometrist visits the facility on a monthly basis. Appointments are scheduled through the receptionist.

Shopping Bus

A Shopping Bus is available to take ASC members to a shopping mall every Thursday with two groups shopping on alternate weeks.

Tea Room

The Volunteers also operate a popular afternoon tea in the quiet setting of the mezzanine from Monday through Friday from 2:00 to 4:00 PM.

Outdoor Garden

Our outdoor garden is a place of beauty during the summer months. A relaxing fountain, the sweet smell of flowers blooming and a park-like setting provide the perfect ambiance for reading a book, conversing with friends or just to sit back and relax. We also hold many barbecues, concerts and other events in our garden.

Special Function Facilities

Special events for tenants or residents such as family gatherings, anniversaries, birthday parties, can be booked in either the Activity Room, the Mezzanine, the Adjuvant Room or the Conference Room free of charge apart from a minimal charge for set-up or clean-up if required and any requested catering.

Worship Centre

The Wexford has its own chapel located on the ground floor of the building. There are three regularly scheduled ministers who make an effort to see anyone who may need or want a special visit. Anyone belonging to faiths other than those represented by the Pastoral service committee are encouraged to attend the services of their choice outside of the centre.
The Wexford respects the individual faith and spiritual values of every resident and tenant. A number of services are available. Depending on availability other denominations would also be welcome.
