Welcome to Nanaimo Travellers Lodge
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.
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 five 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.
- We are a specialized home for 90 people living with dementia.
- Our three Adult Day Programs serve 155 people with dementia who live at home.
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.
