Our World Is Caring ….
TWENTY FIVE YEARS and counting …
Dwelling Place is a private seniors’ complex care facility built on the principle of providing care with --
Dignity, Comfort and Security.
Our Mission Statement: To provide quality professional care and, at all times, help preserve and respect the dignity of each individual. This we will deliver in a warm, compassionate, family home atmosphere within a Godly milieu.
Through our TWENTY FIVE years of continuous operation, we have cared for clients with varying stages of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia forms; we have cared for seniors dealing with post-stroke challenges; clients coping with the increasing challenges of ALS; clients with Parkinson’s disease; clients requiring special appliances such as oxygen, ostomy devices, and tube feeding; and of course our very elderly who quite simply require the utmost in loving and compassionate care. We provide palliative care in a peaceful and pleasant home atmosphere.
We Provide Personalized Care NOT “Institutionalized” Care
Its size is well-suited for providing a very personalized care in a serene atmosphere away from the din and “sterile” environment of larger institutions. Relationships and trust are allowed to develop and flourish between clients and the care team.
If you are looking for personalized care, Dwelling Place has a room for you and a care team ready to open their hearts to you! Whether you need care for a few days, or for longer periods, Dwelling Place welcomes you.
Dwelling Place was established in November 1992. Starting with four beds, it was developed further to its present capacity of 16 licensed beds. The City of Nanaimo awarded it the City of Nanaimo Design Award in 1997. It is located in the well-established Diver Lake neighbourhood in North Nanaimo. It is within 10-15 minutes to all community amenities such as NRGH, Seniors Complex, malls and parks. Two bus stops are steps away from the facility. It is easily accessible from either of the two ferry terminals, the airport and Highway 19 and 19A.
Dwelling Place is a provincially licensed facility (License # 138110) and works closely and cooperatively with the Community Care Facilities Licensing Office
to ensure the safety and security of its clientele. Together with the Licensing Office we continually endeavor to abide by all the provisions of the Adult & Community Living Regulations
under the Community and Assisted Living Act of BC. Any shortfalls are corrected as quickly as possible.
