"There's no place like home..."
NACL operates several residences in the Nanaimo community, providing a wide range of services to a diverse group of individuals. Each residence is home to two to six people. All the homes are tastefully decorated, and each resident has his/her own private living area.
Each NACL resident has a Person Centered Plan, which incorporates a community integration component to ensure they are involved in their community on a regular basis. Family and friends are encouraged to be a part of the residents' lives.
All NACL residents are currently referred to us by Community Living British Columbia.
Residential Services Staffing
Our homes are overseen by a Program Manager, with a Senior Residence Worker on site.
Homes with three or more people residing in them are licensed by the Vancouver Island Health Authority, which ensures that provincial legislation is followed.
All staff are trained based on the specific needs of persons served, and are required to provide and/or keep the following documentation/certifications up to date:
- First Aid/CPR certificate
- Criminal Record Check
- Class 4 Unrestricted Driver's License (for wheelchair transport)
- PCT (Person Centered Thinking) Training
- SIVA (Supporting Individuals Through Valued Attachments) Training
NACL always welcomes applications for Community Support Workers. Go to our Work Opportunities page for more information on employment with us.
