The Ayre Manor Lodge seniors housing and long-term care facility in Sooke is seeking casual staff.
They posted the opportunity in social media last week, coming up ahead of the holiday season when other staff may be taking breaks.
The Ayre Manor career page currently posts positions for: Registered Nurses, Licenced Practical nurses, and resident care workers.
Longstanding in Sooke:
The Sooke community launched Ayre Manor almost 15 years ago, as a way to help local residents age in place within their community. They offer independent living, assisted living, complex care and hospice care.
Current Ayre Manor Board Chair is Irene Todd, Vice-Chair is Georgina Patko, and Secretary-Treasurer is Philip Hulme, all of whom are relatively new to the Sooke community. The other two directors are Pat Phillips (long time Sooke resident) and David Hannis.
Ayre Manor supporters took part in the 2022 Sooke Santa Parade this past weekend.
Ayre Manor Senior’s Housing is owned by the Sooke Elderly Citizens’ Housing Society.
