Position Summary

We are currently seeking a Community Health Worker to join our team in Trail home support at Kiro Wellness Centre.

Are you dedicated to delivering patient-centered care? Are you looking for a flexible work schedule? 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 is a Relief Part Time opportunity that will end upon the return of the incumbent. The shifts for this position are rotating days and evenings with shift hours between 07:00 to 16;00, 15:00 to 23:00.

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! If you are looking for an opportunity to do meaningful work while joining a great team, the Kiro Wellness Centre 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. • Interior Health now offers assistance from an Aboriginal Employment Advisor. If you self-identify as Aboriginal (First Nations, Métis or Inuit) and if you would like assistance with the application process, job readiness, interview readiness or tips for resume and cover letter writing, send your question via email to [email protected] to be redirected to the Employment Advisor.

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 your CV (or resume) please provide a copy of your health care certificate.*
