Acacia Ty Mawr

2655 Shawnigan Lake Road, Shawnigan Lake, BC, Canada

Care Level

Arguably Trillium’s most scenic property, Acacia Ty Mawr is nestled amidst five acres of gardens and wooded glens in the community of Shawnigan Lake.

Originally a heritage house, Acacia Ty Mawr was transformed into a 35-suite residence, revitalizing the government-subsidized home into an enviable character home. Features of the original heritage house, including wide mouldings to stained-glass windows, were conserved in an effort to preserve its beauty and charm.

Acacia is a publicly funded home; as such, its beds are reserved for those who are awaiting a bed via the Vancouver Island Health Authority.

“Thank you for taking such amazing care of my dad, my sisters and me. You made a terrible situation bearable. The thoughtful, tender care you gave our dad made us feel very comforted.”
