Our goal is to create a homelike environment for people and their families, with experiences and activities that honour their life history, support their abilities, and maintain their dignity.
We want our care homes to be places where amazing things happen, and for all who come through our doors to find purpose, wellbeing, and happiness. That’s why we have a volunteer Board of Directors that provides leadership, support, and accountability for all of our operations. The Board monitors quality of care; formulates and reviews the Broadmead Care constitution and bylaws; and establishes the purpose, values, and future direction of our organization. The Board has an active committee structure with specific work plans and measurable objectives aligned to our strategic plan.
The Board has an ongoing commitment to ensure a close working relationship with the Broadmead Care executive team, all levels of government, and members of the community.
