For the past few months, residents have seen the transition of all the Oak Crest Salons over to the new salon management company, PS Salons. While the transition has been a smooth one, many residents are still left asking why they should choose PS Salons over an outside service.

First and foremost, PS Salons is here on the Oak Crest campus. Whether it’s Town Center, Crestview Station, Village Square, or Continuing Care, you receive the same excellent quality service throughout the campus.

Also, PS Salons is a company dedicated to providing a modern, inviting environment where residents, friends, and family want to come together and enjoy a social spa experience. These are salons/spas designed with seniors’ needs in mind. The services, products, and stylists are geared towards residents of retirement communities and their particular needs.

Learn more about PS Salons, their staff, and their service when members of the salon staff join Lauren Costello on Tuesday, November 1  as part of Oak Crest Now. The show will air at 10:00 AM, 2:00 PM, 7:00 PM, 9:00 PM, and 12:00 AM. It will also be available the following day at www.oakcresttv.com.

Train Ride to the Past

If you’ve grown up in Baltimore you are very familiar with the ever popular B&O Railroad. You’ve probably walked past it as a child or maybe even ridden your bike around the neighborhood. Well, all these years later the B&O Railroad you know and love is back…but this time at Oak Crest.

Speaker, Dan Toomey is very familiar with the B&O Railroad having acted as a curator for some of the exhibits. He has written 12 books about various topics involving the war along with many things that have happened in the city of Baltimore. His lecture takes you back to the very beginning of time before the railroad was even established. The pictures he shows you through his presentation really show you how no one had any clues or insight into how to build a railroad. It is amazing to see how they went from having horses pulling cable cars, to actually creating a huge train for this process.

This program airs on Tuesday, October 18th at 10AM, 2PM, 7PM, 9PM, and 12AM. You can also watch the program the following day online at www.oakcresttv.com.
