Position Summary

We are currently seeking Community Health Workers to join our team in Kelowna Home Support. 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.

Current opportunities include:

  • Permanent Part Time 0.67 FTE rotating evening line (15:00 to 22:00, 16:00 to 22:00) in West Kelowna
  • Relief Part Time 0.63 rotating day line (07:00 to 15:30, 07:00 to 13:30) in Kelowna South

  • 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! If you are looking for an opportunity to do meaningful work while joining a great team, the Kelowna Home Support team is the place for you. Apply today!

  • We invite applicants to self-identify as First Nation, Métis or Inuit within cover letters and/or resumes.
