Welcome

Arrowsmith Lodge opened in 1971. Find out more about Arrowsmith history.

Arrowsmith Lodge & Cokely Manor are self-supporting, non-denominational homes for the elderly of Parksville, BC & District.

Our overall goals are:

  • to provide the highest quality of care, consistent with the efficient use of resources in a setting that is as much like home as possible;
  • to use the Eden Alternative Model of Care to create an Elder-centred community environment that addresses the three plagues of long term care: loneliness, helplessness and boredom;
  • to make our services available to people in the community and to help those people remain in their community.

Programs stemming from these goals include:

  • Adult Day Care Program
  • Respite Program
  • Quality assurance
  • Activities for residents
  • Interaction with residents in the community & other facilities
  • Assistance in maintaining the mental, emotional, physical, social and spiritual well-being of residents
  • Bathing Program
  • Educational sessions for the Board & staff
