Langley Care Society
Chief Executive Officer
The Langley Care Society (LCS), a registered Canadian charity incorporated in 1972, has a mission to provide exceptional quality of care and enrichment for the aging population in the community. LCS operates the Langley Lodge complex care facility, which opened its doors in 1974 and provides 24 hours of nurse support each day for 139 elders. Built primarily to provide personal and intermediate care, today the Lodge provides complex care, respite care, and adult day programs, and is proud of being a trusted community partner in Langley. LCS has been awarded the highest standing of CARF Canada accreditation and in 2018 adopted the Eden Philosophy of Care to improve the well-being of its residents by transforming the communities in which they live.
Reporting to the Board of Directors, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) is responsible for the operations management, program development, and service coordination for the Langley Care Society. The CEO is accountable for the overall planning, leadership, management, and results of LCS, and promotes the organization’s mission, strategic goals, and outcomes to internal and external stakeholders in the broader community. They ensure that the organization operates in alignment with all legislative and regulatory requirements and accreditation standards, maintaining quality of care and quality of life for the persons served, and are responsible for the fiscal management and the maintenance of required information and records.
The ideal candidate is an extraordinary leader that blends deep-rooted community values with organizational effectiveness and who has been responsible for overseeing a large, complex operation, working in partnership with the community as well as with a myriad of other external partners. Possessing multiple years of senior leadership experience gained within a health or care provider organization, the CEO will be recognized as a credible and influential professional who is motivated to build and expand on an already successful and well-regarded organization. They are a confident spokesperson with experience running all aspects of an organization, and ideally possess a working knowledge of healthcare and long-term care issues. The incumbent will have worked closely with boards of directors to guide strategy development and set priorities, and is an outstanding motivator and mentor of professional staff teams.
The selected candidate must be able to adapt to a continually evolving environment and thrive in a publicly visible, autonomous, and caring workplace while overseeing a complex portfolio. A passion to improve the quality of life for seniors in care and in the community is a must.
