Position Summary

We are currently seeking a Community Health Worker to join our team at the Armstrong Health Centre.

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.

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

This is a Permanent Part Time (0.67 FTE) line working rotating days and evenings with shift times of 07:00 to 13:00, 16:00 to 22:00, 07:00 to 13:30, and 16:30 to 22:00. There are also additional opportunities for casual work – if you wish to work more hours just let us know!

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!

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!

If you are looking for an opportunity to do meaningful work while joining a great team, the Armstrong Health Centre 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.*
