The Canterbury Foundation, based in Edmonton and founded over forty years ago, is a non-profit, high-quality provider of supportive housing for the elderly. Three separate residences - Canterbury Manor, Canterbury Court and Canterbury Lane - offer a variety of healthcare services, recreational programs and a wide range of amenities to allow a seamless continuum of care, so residents can stay in a familiar environment and age-in-place as their needs for support and assistance change.
Currently Canterbury Foundation is embarking on an exciting new chapter, adding additional suites for residents requiring specialized dementia care, an end-of-life complex, affordable housing to accommodate seniors with lower incomes, a redeveloped common area to allow seniors outside Canterbury to easily partake in programming, and a five-story building that will increase capacity by 16%.
Reporting to the Executive Director, the Director, Health Services (the Director) will provide overall leadership to a team of nursing professionals (RNs, LPNs and HCAs), social workers and Activities Coordinators to provide optimal health and family-centred care. The Director oversees responsive and efficient personal/home care services that lead to the achievement and maintenance of accreditation status. The Director also ensures continuous quality improvement, contributing the the organization’s future vision and strategic direction, and will play an integral role in the development and optimization of the new and renovated facilities.
