Ehatare Retirement and Nursing Home is a charity owned and operated Retirement and Long-Term Care Home built by the Estonian Relief Committee in Canada. As an ethnic, not-for-profit home, Ehatare’s mission is to serve the Estonian-Canadian Community in the GTA and beyond. The Retirement Home has 83 units consisting of single, double occupancy and new 1-bedroom suites. The Nursing Home has a mixture of rooms serving 32 Residents. Ehatare’s dedicated staff has a history of providing exceptional quality care with excellent community and family relations. In recent years, the organization has made significant investments in new and larger suites, updating major infrastructure and is in the process of upgrading common areas. The vision behind this significant investment is to leverage its excellent history and status as a resident focused, boutique style, ethnic Home that is changing to meet the expectations of a new generation of residents.
This home’s “raison d’etre” is its cultural experience. Residents come to Ehatare for the comfort of living in an environment that respects and honours their language, customs and traditions. The successful candidate has to demonstrate an ability to proactively build upon that heritage in the context of continuously improving the resident experience in all areas. As a not-for-profit, Ehatare is seeking a strategic, passionate leader with excellent communication skills and experience in long term care and retirement home management. Strong personal and customer service skills are required to mentor, coach, and build excellent relationships with staff, residents and families. Allowing colleagues to participate actively in the process and encouraging idea sharing, better problem solving and maintaining a cohesive environment is fundamentally important in this close-knit Home. While managing and implementing current operational plans and improvements, a successful candidate will be continually engaged with the Board to enhance and compliment the organization’s vision for the future.
