ADULT DAY PROGRAM

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

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.
