In 1995, The Lodge at Broadmead opened its doors on Chatterton Way. Originally operated by the Tillicum and Veterans Care Society, the residential care facility has priority-access beds for veterans and offers services such as the Veterans Health Centre. Coincidentally, The Lodge is located in a community where many streets are named after Second World War battles.

• Chatterton Way: Owes its name to George Chatterton, a local politician who served in the Royal Canadian Air Force from 1942-46 and was devoted to establishing veterans’ housing.

• Falaise Crescent: Pays homage to the battle fought at Falaise Gap in August of 1944.

• Also named in honour of the Second World War are Dieppe, Normandy and Caen roads.
