Position Summary
We are currently seeking a Community Health Worker to join our team in Grand Forks. Do you pride yourself on your positive attitude and strong work ethics? Are you dedicated to delivering patient-centered care? If the answer is ‘yes’ then we want to hear from you!

As a Community Health Worker, you will work as part of a dynamic team of Nurses and LPNs who support Community Clients’ independence and ability to stay at home. Community Health Workers provide home support services to clients, by assisting with personal care and daily living, while promoting maximum independence. Community Health Workers are key players in the home health care plan for each client.

This position works evenings 22 hrs/week (15:30 to 21:30) with a 4 days on, 4 days off rotation. These are guaranteed paid hours so even if we do not have enough client hours to offer, you will still be paid for your full hours. This is unlikely to happen at this time as we currently have a heavy demand on our services and could even offer additional casual hours to interested candidates!

Permanent employees are eligible for our full comprehensive benefits plan including medical and dental coverage; group life and disability insurance; paid sick and vacation time; and, when you’re ready to leave work behind, an excellent pension!

Typical duties include:
• Activities of daily personal care, such as bathing, dressing, grooming and oral hygiene
• Household duties related to maintaining a safe and healthy environment in the home
• Meal preparation in accordance with designated plans
• Assistance with mobility and transfers
• Observing and reporting changes in client behaviour and condition
• Performing delegated tasks according with training and procedures

For people with certain health issues, age-related limitations or other disabilities, managing everyday tasks can be challenging. The support that we provide through the Home Support program enables clients to recover or simply remain at home rather than in a hospital or care facility – in many cases our visits can be the highlight of their day!

Interior Health strives to create an environment where you enjoy the work you do, the place where you work, and the people around you. Everyone plays a role in the care continuum. If you are looking for an opportunity to do meaningful work supporting your clients while working with a great team, Grand Forks home support is the place for you. Apply today!

Qualifications
• Grade 12
• Graduation from a recognized Resident Care Aide/Home Support Worker Program, or an equivalent combination of education, training and relevant experience
• BC Care Aide and Community Health Worker registry (please include your number)
• Current valid BC Drivers’ License and use of a reliable vehicle

*Along with a copy of your CV (or resume) please provide a copy of your certificate.*

* All postings with a closing date specified close at 11:59 pm PT
