Our Talent is Caring
Chris and Tawnya’s decision to open up Vancouver Island’s first location arose from a growing need for senior home care in Duncan, Cowichan Valley, Mill Bay, Cobble Hill, Chemainus and Ladysmith. In addition to senior home 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.

Behind the heart
Personally seeing a growing need for quality senior home 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 elder care service in the central Vancouver Island region.
