About UsAt 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.
- We are a specialized home for 90 people living with dementia.
- Our three Adult Day Programs serve 160 people with dementia who live at home.
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.
