Dementia Friendly Eden Gardens
Start date: 1 May, 2016
End date: 27 April, 2017
Nanaimo Travellers Lodge is building a new care home to be ready April 2017, named Eden Gardens, and increasing our capacity by 44%.
Nature of the Project Reach
Due to our aging population, and the increase in Dementia cases everywhere, we are providing a compassionate care home for 130 full time residents with dementia, and day programs for 155 people from mid Vancouver Island area.
In our new care home, residents will enjoy purposefully designed communities that will enable them to live with dignity and freedom in a social and safe environment with dementia friendly interiors.
To help residents remain independent and actively engaged in community life, each individual receives a tailored care plan that focuses on physical and emotional health, nutrition and medication management. All NTL staff members are given specialized training to provide residents with the assistance and support their special needs require.
This empowers our staff and gives them the necessary tools to be responsive, and to continue to provide compassionate, quality care.
