“Welcome to Lakeside Gardens, a well-connected seniors community on the stunning shores of Long Lake in Nanaimo. As the general manager, my favourite part of the day is helping our residents live their best lives in an independent and caring environment. I also love the quality of dining services and cuisine we are able to offer residents, best enjoyed overlooking breathtaking views of Long Lake. Join us for a private tour to view the many amenities we have to offer and see for yourself how a move to Lakeside Gardens can benefit your lifestyle.”

“I have lived at Lakeside Gardens since 2004 and enjoyed every minute. It is a beautiful spot on Long Lake and one can look out of the dining room and enjoy a fantastic array of flowers. The staff are always quick in being helpful and will help you book your appointments and arrange the Lakeside bus to take you and bring you back home. The food is very good and well thought out for healthy living and there is a handyman that will fix things for you.”
