About Orchard Park

In the scenic bay side community of Bellingham, you will discover Orchard Park Assisted Living Residence. From the beginning, Orchard Park Assisted Living has been about more than providing a home and care services for our loved ones. An equal commitment is to nurture the overall well being of our senior residents and strengthen the family ties which bond this unique community.

Life at Orchard Park reflects these priorities by hosting 82 comfortable suites, a spacious dining room serving home style meals, a fireplace library stocked with popular reading materials and resident centered recreation and entertainment.

With one of the best locations in Whatcom County, Orchard Park is only two minutes from Bellis Fair Mall and all the amenities you may need.

Unicare Homes is pleased to announce our Lakeside Gardens community in Nanaimo has been awarded the BC Seniors Living Association (BCSLA) Seal of Approval.

BCSLA, working with a team of industry leaders, has developed a high set of standards and best practices for the Seal of Approval program.

In the eyes of the consumer, clients, residents, and the public at large, BCSLA member communities awarded the Seal will be recognized as providing Service of the Highest Standard.

These standards have been identified as essential for the safe operation of a senior living community and the safety of the residents who reside there.

In order to receive the Seal of Approval within membership of BCSLA, a senior living community must comply with all of the standards at their first survey and each additional survey, which are scheduled every two years.

Lakeside Gardens General Manager Lesley Lamontagne is delighted to have achieved this prestigious award and looks forward to continue delivering the highest level of service to our current and future residents.

We are proud to announce that resident Thelma Young of Lakeside Gardens in Nanaimo has won the prestigious Angel Pot Garden award from the BC Seniors Living Association. Congratulations Thelma on your award and thanks for beautifying Lakeside Gardens!
