About Glacier View Lodge

The Grand Parade is a national event that raises awareness of the needs of seniors in our country, and raises money locally to support Glacier View Lodge, the Comox Valley’s longest operating complex care facility.


Funds raised this year will be allocated to the Music Therapy program and to Glacier View Lodge.


Glacier View Lodge is home to 101 people, largely seniors, needing 24 hr. professional health care. We also support seniors & caregivers living in the Comox Valley through Adult Day Program, Respite, and Community Bathing.


We respect our residents and clients by actively listening & endeavoring to put their wishes first.


Glacier View Lodge…Feels like home
