“Spending time with friends, old and new, keeping active and truly enjoying our lives, that’s what it’s all about.”
Bob, Nanaimo resident

The Kiwanis Village ADP is currently closed as a precaution due to COVID-19. Please check back for updates about a re-opening date

Kiwanis Village is strengthened through the rich kinship we share with the wider Nanaimo community.

An established community service, Kiwanis Village Adult Day Program is open five days a week from 10am – 3pm. Kiwanis Village is well known for facilitating connection and friendship for participants, connecting like-minded folks and creating some space for caregivers to refresh and renew. Space is purposefully designed and well supported.

making possible future transitions easier and smoother. With an inviting, home-like environment – it truly feels like a day spent with friends.
