Hello everyone,                                                                                               November 10, 2020

As we continue through each phase of the pandemic we grow and learn from each other. We are working together as a team to ensure we follow safe protocols for visitation and Recreation. We want to reassure you that we continue preparations and planning in the event of a Covid outbreak within our community at Nanaimo Seniors Village.  Our team has worked hard making sure we have adequate PPE supplies, and that our team members are trained on usage and best practises.

Our goal is to ensure everyone’s safety.  We are mindful of the growing numbers of positive Covid case across the different Health Authorities.  The NSV team is keeping well informed of Island Health Safety Protocols to ensure the safety of your loved ones. We have a dedicated team of workers and managers from all departments.
