This executive search is conducted by Nelson/Kraft & Associates on behalf of Tabor Home Society.
Today in BC, seniors outnumber children, a trend that will only accelerate in the decades to come. Tabor Village is looking to the future and embarking on strategies to meet the needs and demands of senior care, from independent living, to assisted living, to complex care. To that end, Tabor Village seeks an Executive Director with a passion and drive to be an innovative leader in senior health care.
You are accountable, approachable and able to lead change through positive, supportive initiatives, empowering others. You inspire and motivate those around you, communicate and engage with families in an inclusive, compassionate manner. Your strong financial acumen and 10+ years of experience in health care will be strategic in leading Tabor Village towards the future.
Tabor Village, a faith based not for profit, founded in Abbotsford by members of Mennonite Brethren churches in Vancouver and the Fraser Valley has been caring for seniors for nearly 60 years. With over 400 employees and staff, Tabor Village is dedicated to helping seniors live life to the fullest by being committed to their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.
From its small beginnings as a 39-bed care home, Tabor Village today offers independent living, assisted living and complex care in four separate residences on two campuses.
Senior care is changing as we anticipate seniors living longer, more active lives and desiring community, connection and independence, even for those who require complex care. Tabor Village is leading the way, embarking on a multi-phase 10-year plan to update and create new residences and programs for Tabor Village.
The first phase will include replacing Tabor Home Complex Care building with a new, innovative Complex Care Residence based on the “Household Model” and adding 60 units of assisted living suites to the existing Tabor Court building. Seniors will have private bedroom suites located in a small home design that includes an open kitchen, family dining room, living room, den and access to outdoors. The design creates a vibrant living community that allows for flexible routines and personal preferences while nurturing a safe home-like experience. The new facility will hold 11 “households” on six floors, with 14 residents in each household.
Phase Two will see the construction of a second Independent Living facility and Phase Three will add a Community Centre and Chapel complex so a complete Campus of Care can be offered to residence.
The Executive Director (“ED”) reports directly to the Tabor Home Society Board of Directors and is responsible for developing and implementing the policies and directives of the Board of Directors to ensure the spiritual mission of Tabor is carried out in addition to meeting all legislative and regulatory requirements.
A supporter of the “small household model of care,” the ED is responsible for the effective operational management of the campus by ensuring that a high standard of care is maintained for the residents by competent managers and staff. The ED develops and maintains a good working relationship with the Fraser Health Authority and professional contacts with relative organizations, agencies, government departments, and our eleven Mennonite Brethren participating congregations.
