For your convenience, Brouillette Manor offers a selection of optional unfunded services that are meant to not only maintain the quality of life, but also improve it. Payment for some of these services can be made from the resident trust account, if such account was open upon admission, and included on the monthly statement. Example of unfunded services are as follows:
Done by our hairstylist in our on-site beauty salon with both men and women welcome to utilize the haircare services
Telephone and TV
Cogeco cable and Bell phone services are conveniently available in each room. Residents that would like these installed can arrange this with the service provider directly. Payment for this service is the family’s responsibility
Assessments and treatments can be conducted on site through Samaritan Seniors Dental who will provide these services to our residents if requested.
Appointments can be scheduled to have on-site footcare done. Our staff are happy to provide you with contact information for Crystal’s Foot Care that currently services our home.
Services are provided by Classic Care Pharmacy, a division of Centric Health. Most medications are covered by Ontario’s drug benefit program although the odd medication may not be. The contact information for Classic Care can be found on our “Useful Resources” page.

On admission, our Activation Department will send an application to the Municipality, for the resident to be able to use the Handi-transit service in Tecumseh, if needed. This transportation service is available for individuals with mobility issues. The Resident will be required to pay a nominal fee; however they are able to bring someone to assist them at no additional charge. There are also a variety of alternatives that can be explored for transportation needs for either wheelchair accessible or stretcher accessible appointments. The Registered Staff can provide a complete list of options.

For instance, Geri-Fashions will visit and display their clothing. This company provides a wide selection of easy care clothing for men and women, as well as wheel-chair adaptive clothing and accessories. Dates of their visits will be posted for everyone to see.
