Since being awarded a franchise, Chris and Tawnya have set a goal to build the leading senior care service in the central Vancouver Island region

At Nurse Next Door we believe it’s about caring, not just health care so our priority is focusing on the needs of seniors while getting them back to being healthy and doing the things they used to love. We cover a full range of senior care in Nanaimo, Cowichan Valley, Ladysmith and Parksville ranging from housekeeping to palliative care. Whether home health care service is needed for a few hours a day or around-the-clock, we guarantee that you will be paired up with suitable caregivers who are matched based on skill-set and interests.

Our goal is to give families peace of mind while allowing seniors to maintain their dignity and remain as independent as possible. Nurse Next Door Nanaimo guarantees this by sticking to the brand promises of the “Perfect Match, Fast and Easy Access, 24/7 Accessibility and Service, and Managing Everything Every Step of the Way.” Caregivers go through an extensive hiring process complete with a discovery session before their first visit. We make sure that qualified caregivers are hired who fit the core values of our company. Our caregivers are more than task-oriented as they also strive to build relationships with clients and help them achieve their goals.

Our Talent is Caring

Chris and Tawnya’s decision to open up Vancouver Island’s first location arose from a growing need for home health care in Nanaimo, Cowichan Valley, Ladysmith and Parksville. In addition to senior care, they realized demand for specialized care such as Alzheimer’s and Dementia care. Nurse Next Door Nanaimo also understands the importance of the relationships between clients and families so they are part of the Keeping Connected program. This program involves technology training around what matters – staying connected with loved ones. Our patient, senior experts will help you or your loved one, learn and enjoy today’s best technologies. No matter the type of care, you will be assigned a Care Designer who will oversee care and give regular updates.

Nurse Next Door offers a wide range of one-on-one Home Care Services in Nanaimo.

Chris Wilkinson, Tawnya Wilkinson

Behind the heart

Personally seeing a growing need for quality senior care in Cowichan Valley was all Chris and Tawnya needed to take on the challenge of bringing Nurse Next Door to their community. Helping people improve their lives was a catalyst for both to work in fitness related careers and also spurred their interest in Vancouver Island’s first Nurse Next Door franchise.

The couple decided to vie for the franchise opportunity after receiving a tip from a good friend. Since being awarded a franchise, Chris and Tawnya have set a goal to build the leading senior care service in the central Vancouver Island region.
