Assigned parking spots are awarded via a lottery system. Lotteries occur on Thursday for the coming week. Residents must let us know if they wish to be entered. If all spaces are occupied, your name can be put on a waiting list. The parking pass is valid for the week in which it is issued only. Passes must be returned at check-out and will be re-assigned each week. If you receive a parking pass, you must park only in your assigned space, and display the provided parking pass at all times.
As an alternative, there is paid parking available close to the Lodge. Contact Imperial Parking at 902-452-0362 or Victoria General (VG) at 902-473-2143 for more information.
If you have not brought your own vehicle, local cab companies and metro transit are available. Two bus stops are located right outside the Lodge. A list of town shuttle services are available on request.
The Lodge does not offer medical services, nursing services or the provision of medication. While in Halifax, your medical care should be coordinated under the supervision of your physician. If emergency medical treatment is required, you should seek help at the Emergency Department of the QEII Health Sciences Centre, located at the Halifax Infirmary site.
Some toiletries, as well as laundry detergent and fabric softener can be purchased at the reception desk.
Activities and programs
Weekly activities are posted online, on our message board and our digital signs located in the Wellness Centre. Activities include everything from music nights to spa-like pampering sessions. Support groups and information sessions are also available.
In our Multi-Purpose Room, guests will find a sewing machine, dart board, ping-pong table, puzzles, cards and arts and crafts supplies. Those who would like to remain physically active are welcome to use our exercise room which has a treadmill, elliptical machine, stationary cycle and free weights, or use our yoga room for gentler activity.
Hair care room
Our professional hairstylist is only too happy to offer complimentary hair care services to all of our residents. Space for these services is limited; make your appointment at the reception desk. The Salon also provides free wigs and head wraps, as well as a limited supply of mastectomy bras and both temporary and permanent prostheses. Our staff are happy to fit you for any of these items.
