Description & Services
'Nakile' is a native name meaning sunset. The name was chosen by Oscar Nauss, a local historian, to reflect the nature of the Home. 
Nakile opened its doors in December 1989, as a 36-bed facility. In 2015, a new wing was opened, bringing our total capacity to 47 permanent beds and one respite bed (for persons seeking a short-term stay). We recognize the special needs of the elderly population and work toward providing quality care to all persons living at Nakile. 
Family and friends are encouraged to visit at any time.  
We have plenty of volunteer opportunities available!
