Lakeside Gardens Seniors Community Nanaimo 1

Retirement homes are sometimes perceived as lonely places, especially during the holidays. However, this stereotype is far from the truth. Our staff work tirelessly to create a warm holiday atmosphere for our residents in retirement homes in Nanaimo. From Christmas dinners to outings to seeing the beautiful local Christmas lights, this blog outlines how senior housing communities in Nanaimo make sure our residents feel festive and comfortable during the holidays. 


Decorating your space with tons of holiday decorations is one of the best ways to get in a more festive mood. Our Retirement homes in Nanaimo set aside days where our staff help residents set up Christmas decorations. We also create handmade decorations at many of our senior housing locations (paper snowflakes are some of our personal favourites). Creating decorations and putting them up helps get residents in a festive mood whilst allowing them to socialize. 


Our Retirement homes in Nanaimo also host many holiday events throughout December such as Christmas dinners. Many locations also host New Year’s Eve Parties for the residents, though we often host those a little earlier than midnight so as not to keep the residents up too late. Christmas performances by carolers are also common. We also often host holiday pyjama parties where residents can dress up in their most festive pyjamas.


Our Retirement homes in Nanaimo also offer many festive outings. Touring local Christmas lights is often a fun activity we organize. Some VRS locations also visit local Christmas markets and restaurants for special Christmas meals.
