In keeping with our Mission Statement, our Ten Year Vision is to be viewed as a leader in the delivery of long term care services in a rural community which consistently meets and more often exceeds all requirements of a forty bed long term care facility.
As Orchard View looked forward to the next ten years, several internal factors were considered causing us to ask what will our organization need for management practices; what will our overall structure need to be and how will our planning and decision making within the organization be made. Several external factors were also discussed which lead to our consideration of political direction, economic factors, social matters and future technology and its use in long term care.
Our aspirations to support this vision have been aimed high when consideration is given to all of the internal challenges and potentially threatening external factors, however we believe that our current organizational strengths and willingness to pursue opportunities allow the goals of our vision to be realistic and achievable given our known resources.
Our Community Relationship
Our Community Relationship shall be based on our values as a non-profit organization working in collaboration with the Village of Gagetown and its citizens. Community relations shall be strengthened through establishing a formally structured youth volunteer program to compliment the established volunteer pool. Services shall be extended to include a variety of care service programs to community members.
