Eliminate Home Maintenance Tasks
From exterior painting to landscaping, there is always something that needs to be done to a home. At OceanView, we take care of all that for you! This allows you to get valuable time back so you can stress less about home maintenance and focus on whatever it is that makes you happiest. Some of OceanView’s maintenance items include:

Enjoy Security and Safety
Your wellness and safety is a top priority for us at OceanView, which is why we take every step possible to ensure you feel secure. Our campus has alert systems in each building with a 24-hour emergency response to calls, including in cottages. If you are experiencing a medical emergency, you can rest assured that help will be on the way in a matter of minutes.
We also understand that long-term health must be considered as we age, which is why we offer transitional support for each phase of life. Our Falmouth House Assisted Living or Legacy Memory Care residences are available to support you and offer you the best care possible.
