Glacier View Lodge Society appoints new executive director
Michael Aikins is the new executive director of Glacier View Lodge and The Views, as appointed by the Glacier View Lodge Society.
Aikins is an experienced administrator of long-term care facilities and brings a wealth of expertise with a focus on delivering outstanding care to residents and their families, the society says. Throughout his career, Aikins has demonstrated his commitment to working in a collaborative manner with staff, residents and families.
Most recently, he served as the general manager at the Comox Valley Seniors Village and Casa Loma and is, therefore, very familiar with our community.
Michael holds a bachelor of applied science (gerontology major) from the University of Guelph in Ontario and holds certification as a long-term care facility administrator.
Michael is married and the father of two children, aged four and seven. He will begin work in early January.
"I am thrilled with the opportunity to join Glacier View Lodge and The Views,” commented Aikins. “To live and work in the Valley is such an amazing privilege, and to be able to join these reputable community based organizations that have been serving seniors and their families for over 30 years is something I am very much looking forward to.”
“On behalf of the board of directors, I am very pleased to welcome Michael,” said board chair Bob Scales. “His knowledge and guidance will be of great support to the board and our staff as we continue to provide superior quality service to our residents.” — Glacier View Lodge Society
