Client Testimonials

Jo-Ann Ljubinkovic, Port Coquitlam, BC
My father has been suffering from Alzheimer's for several years. We attempted to keep him in a family environment as long as we could. In late 1999 it became impossible to properly care for him so we spent a great deal of time searching for the proper care facility. We looked at several before we found Dwelling Place. We were impressed from the beginning with the caring manner in which the staff interacted with the residents and the warm comfortable environment. Other care facilities we visited felt very much like an institution, overcrowded and very impersonal. In contrast, Dwelling Place has a small number of residents (13) and provides a high level of personalized care, compassion and offers an environment where residents can safely roam in the garden or just enjoy the outdoors, at any time.

My dad has faced many challenges with the progression of the disease and the staff has been very knowledgeable and patient. They have worked hand-in-hand with me and his doctors to ensure he is comfortable and that his physical and emotional needs are met. In 2003, we moved from Nanaimo to the Lower Mainland and briefly considered relocating him to a closer care facility. We quickly realized that he is very comfortable and well cared for at Dwelling Place and that it would be difficult, if not impossible, to find another facility that compares. I have peace of mind knowing that he is well cared for and that his best interests are always first and foremost.

My heartfelt thanks for your support during our trying times, for your loving care that provided not only comfort to my wife but let her truly feel like being home, without missing her former home and surroundings ... not to forget the opportunity given me to even in a small way be an active part of your caring world.

Christine McPhie, North Vancouver, BC
Thank you all for the great care provided my Dad during his last few weeks. The respect, compassion and humour shown by everyone at the Dwelling Place made a difficult time easier for everyone close to my Dad.

John McIntosh, Ucluelet, BC
My Sister and I could not want a more safe and caring environment for our aging Mother over the last several years. The folks at Dwelling Place show a respect and kindness to the residents that you would hope to see in your own home. The level of care and nurturing is first-rate, and the staff is always cheerful and encouraging.

June and Vincent Dupuis, Comox, BC
We had occasion to place our Mother Winni in the care of the Dwelling Place, Nanaimo, BC from 1995 until her death in 2005. The care she received was excellent and beyond our expectations. We are sure it prolonged her life – she lived until the age of 104.

The environment is most comfortable, the music program most comforting, and the caregivers beginning with Ching and Aurel Muego and throughout their entire staff, endeared them to us, and Mother to them.

We would most highly recommend Dwelling Place to anyone wishing first class care for his or her loved ones.

Mrs. Sylvia Taylor, Nanaimo, BC
My Mom is now celebrating her 5th anniversary at Dwelling Place. On her behalf and that of her family, I would like to thank you for providing such a warm and caring home.

Mom's happiest memories are of the summer she spent on the ocean helping her beloved husband aboard his commercial fishing trawler. On the water there was always the threat of peril and a lighthouse or sheltered harbor became so welcome. It seems now, many years later, that Dwelling Place has become the beacon of light and safe harbor against the many storms of her old age.

Thank you for everything you do to make Dwelling Place such a blessing.

Kurt Mueller, Munich, Germany
My Dad was admitted to Dwelling Place in 1999 and lived there until his death in August 2006. In spite of my Dad’s speech difficulties because of a previous stroke, the staff at Dwelling Place treated him with the utmost dignity, respect and compassion. Although I have seen other more luxurious facilities elsewhere, the care that Dad received until his death at Dwelling Place was second to none.

Gil & Maureen Grisham, Port Coquitlam, BC
We want to thank you for the wonderful birthday luncheon you hosted for Mom on her 92nd birthday.

We so enjoyed her radiant smiles. It gives us much joy to see how peaceful and contented Mom is at Dwelling Place. We very much appreciate all the effort that you both and the rest of the staff put into caring for Mom and the other residents and making Dwelling Place a true home!
