We strive to create a pleasant and supportive work environment. Staff share an office space that is separate from treatment rooms. This was mutually decided upon by the team at the time not only to most efficiently utilize work space, but also to foster a collaborative environment. There are two treatment rooms in Shoreline's unit, and we have access to an additional two rooms in the Professional Centre next door. We will likely be adding another room in our unit later in 2022. Staff have access to a kitchenette in the Professional Centre.
Shoreline is located at Padders Cove on Lake Banook in Dartmouth. Paddlers Cove is an iconic Dartmouth site that over the years has been home to an ice house, lumber yard, and restaurant. It is now home to a variety of businesses including a salon, cafe, allied health services, yoga studio, boutique, and other businesses. Although not the original building, the current Paddlers Cove building is an older Class B building. It was purchased by a new owner around 2017 and has undergone significant renovations (some work is ongoing). The second floor is accessed by stairs (there are future plans to make the second floor accessible). Parking at Paddlers Cove is free. The number 62 bus stops outside the building on Prince Albert Road.
Paddlers Cove is a dog-friendly building. Shoreline's Owner frequently brings in her dog, Kate. Staff may not bring in their own dogs, however, as more than one dog in the office would not work well. Kate is a friendly dog, but she is an AmStaff and a rescue - any prospective applicant should keep this in mind if they are uncomfortable with large breeds or remembering to keep a dog gate closed.
