OUR SINCERE THANKS TO ALL DONORS Through your generosity, Nanaimo Travellers Lodge can continue to provide enhanced dementia care, purchase equipment and fund capital projects (our new building on Northfield, currently under construction), providing our expansion into Eden Gardens. Eden Gardens will increase our capacity by an additional 40 beds, thereby providing communities for 130 Elders, and day program access to 160 Elders with dementia from the surrounding area. With our ground breaking in the summer of 2015, and an anticipated move in date of May 2017, we invite you to call for an appointment to view the building design, floor plans, and site plans for our new Eden Gardens. Your support is invaluable, as it plays a vital role in the delivery of services to Elders living with dementia, and breaking down the barriers that confront them each and every day. Work is about to begin on our fundraising efforts for our Capital Building Project, which will coincide with our annual campaign, and you can help. To donate, please contact or call us at 250-760-2646.

Welcome to Nanaimo Travellers Lodge

We need your help to continue providing high quality, compassionate dementia care to people in our community.

With your help, we can dramatically improve the lives of people with dementia and prepare for the future. But we can't do it alone; find out here about the many ways you can help.
Elder with staff
At Nanaimo Travellers Lodge (NTL), we are passionate about helping Elders with dementia to live as fully as possible and to enjoy life. We work closely with family members and friends to help them in their journey of supporting a loved one with dementia.

At NTL, we strive every day to create a home-like environment where pets, family members, volunteers and other members from the community promote life and interaction.

For over thirty years, Nanaimo Travellers Lodge, a non-profit, charitable organization, has been a leader in Elder Care in the Mid-Island Area. Since 2004, we have been the only dedicated dementia care facility in our region.

Our staff treat people with dementia with respect, offer them choices and give them and their families hope as they struggle with the disease.

Dementia is on the rise in Canada and one in five baby boomers will fall prey to the disease.

The Mid-Island area has more seniors than others parts of the country. As our population continues to age, health care professionals anticipate a surge in people diagnosed with dementia. That person could be your mother, father, sibling, spouse, dear friend or neighbour, or it could be you.

With your help, we can dramatically improve the lives of
people with dementia. And, prepare for the future.
