Tours and Other Amenities
A tour of the Manor can be arranged by contacting the Director of Care.
Resident areas, which are air conditioned, include Town Square (center block) and the dining rooms. Please help to keep these areas cool by keeping the doors and windows closed during the warm weather. Individual Residents rooms are not air conditioned, but Residents are welcomed to install window air conditioners in their rooms at a monthly cost.
Residents may get in-between meals, refreshments and snacks at the Coffee shop. Visitors and family members are welcome to join Residents for meals in Town Square. There is a charge for this and we appreciate some short advance notice.
Residents may shop at the Corner Store in Town Square. Volunteers look after the Corner Store every day from 2 to 4 p.m. except Sundays and holidays. You may pay cash or charge your purchase on your account.

Each Resident may arrange with Bell Canada to bring a personal telephone. A telephone jack is available at each bedside in all areas except Special Care.

Personal telephone numbers are recorded at the Front Office for easy reference. At no time can Maxville Manor interrupt a Resident’s personal line.
We encourage you to have a private phone installed in your room. Incoming calls from a Maxville Manor phone line are transferred to the unit in which the Resident resides.
There are a number of televisions, many with companion VCR units, for the use of Residents in designated lounges throughout Maxville Manor. Residents wishing a television in their room may do so at their expense as space is available. Arrangement for the connection, transfer and termination of cable are to be made at the Front Office.
