“The people living at Nigel House are just regular, ordinary people that had something happen outside their control and they’re trying to make the best of it. The better the place that they’re living, the better the chance of living a better life.”Avril, mother of Ava, who lives at Nigel House

The Vision: A New Nigel House
What will the new home for Nigel House look like? The Plan includes expanding Nigel House to provide a home for 41 adults with disabilities, plus provide 37 assisted living units for seniors and 10 affordable housing units to help ease our community’s housing shortage.
Everyone who lives there will have the privacy and dignity of their own room and washroom. Every space will be designed to make sure that those in wheelchairs will be able to move safely and easily throughout the building.
Beautiful and comfortable common areas on every level will give people places to meet, chat, and socialize. An excellent on-site kitchen will meet the individual dietary needs of everyone at Nigel House, and be able to provide meals in easily accessible dining areas.
The design of the new building will provide ample space to accommodate a wide range of programs and activities. There will be open and covered exterior patios to make it easy for people to get fresh air and sunshine. Access to the nearby Lochside Regional Trail, Saanich Municipal Hall, Saanich Plaza, and Uptown Centre will be improved with at-grade paths, walkways, and crossings, making it easier for people with challenges to live a fuller life in their surrounding neighbourhood.
