Inverary Manor Mock Emergency Exercise

Inverary Manor will be staging a mock exercise of our Emergency Plan between the hours of 5pm and 9pm on Wednesday, October 30th, 2019. This is a mandated requirement from the Department of Health and Wellness and one that all nursing homes in the province conduct from time to time.

We want to emphasize that this emergency exercise is not real. However, the response activities will be practiced in a manner that is as realistic as possible, including the participation of Emergency Services Partners (Fire Depts. etc.).

This exercise is not open to the public and during the period of the exercise, access to our building will be limited to staff and our participating Emergency Services Partners only. If you are planning to visit Inverary Manor on October 30, 2019, we ask that you please do so before 5pm.

We assure you this is a mock exercise, not a real emergency, and our residents will be well taken care of throughout the entire exercise. Family members are not expected to participate.

Inverary Manor is committed to a high quality of safety, service and care for our residents, their families and our community. Our mock emergency exercise is one of many examples of our working to ensure we deliver on these commitments.

If you have any questions, please contact Teresa Smith, Director Recreation Services (902-258-2842 ext. 241) or Stephen Doiron, Administrator (902-258-2842 ext. 228)

Thank you for your understanding.

Joan MacLellan to Retire from Inverary Manor After 32 Years

INVERNESS, N.S. – Craigmore native and current Margaree resident Joan MacLellan is to retire soon after a long, successful tenure as administrator of Inverary Manor in the community of Inverness.

A proponent of lifelong learning, Joan first graduated from St. Francis Xavier University in the early ‘70s and moved to Labrador City to teach before studying business to work as a Certified General Accountant in Newfoundland and Calgary, Alberta. She returned home to Cape Breton in 1980 when she began working as the administrator of Mary’s Hill Home in Mabou in 1980 while completing the Health Services Management Program through the Canadian Healthcare Association.

Shortly after the Municipal Housing Corporation assumed ownership of Mary’s Hill Home in 1984, Joan managed both the Home and the Inverary Manor simultaneously until 1989, when she moved on to work at the Manor full-time.

“I have had a truly amazing work life and have encountered wonderful people along the way,” Mrs. MacLellan said when asked about her impressive career. She plans to enjoy her retirement beside the Margaree River by spending time with her two young grandsons, volunteering with the Inverary Manor’s Auxiliary, enjoying walks and sunsets on Inverness County’s many local beaches, and continuing her lifelong learning by picking up new hobbies.

The Board of the Municipal Housing Corporation and the Municipality of the County of Inverness would like to sincerely congratulate Joan MacLellan and thank her for her tireless dedication and advocacy on behalf of Inverary Manor residents for over three decades, as well as wish her a very happy retirement.
