SECHS to manage Ayre Manor Lodge

Seniors' residence and care facility now being operated locally

The Sooke Elderly Citizens’ Housing Society (SECHS) is pleased to announce that as of July 1, 2014, operations of Ayre Manor will again become the responsibility of SECHS. It has always been the intention of SECHS to one day be able to take over the responsibility of management, and that day has finally arrived.

We take this opportunity to thank Beckley Farm Lodge Society for their past services in support of the oversight and administration of SECHS facilities on our behalf since opening in 2008.

We are pleased to say that most of our caring, and wonderful staff, have signed on to stay with us through this transition, and we hope for years to come.  Residents of Ayre Manor, their families and friends should notice no changes during this time,  just a continuation of the great care that they receive from staff, as well as excellent food from the kitchen. We also, cannot say enough for our team of housekeepers who keep our facility spic and span and we take this opportunity to thank them for the work they do every day and to say that since opening in 2008, our facility is one of the few that has not been hit and closed due to a major outbreak of influenza. Thank you to all staff members.

Ayre Manor will be under the direct care of Jan Roberson as the site Administrator and Andrew Butler, of Andrew Butler & Assoc., as Business Co-ordinator.  Kathy Lamb will be adding direction too in collaboration with Jan and Andrew.  They have agreed to carry on with these functions while SECHS actively searches to fill those positions.  We are currently taking applications for the Director of Care as well as nurses, aides, kitchen and housekeeping candidates to ensure we maintain a full roster of staff on each shift.

We also encourage anyone interested in volunteering or serving on the Board of Directors to contact us at 250-642-1750, or visit our web site at www.ayremanor.ca .

Sandy Pedneault, Chair of SECHS
