Position Summary

Rocky Mountain Lodge in Cranbrook, BC is seeking Community Health Workers to join their team! The ideal candidates will have completed a health care assistant program, current registration with the BC Care Aide Registry, and a passion for providing client-centered care.

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 Casual opportunity. Casual means there are no guaranteed hours and work requirements may vary to a maximum of 40 hours per week. Services are provided in the community between the hours of 07:00 and 23:00 along with the very occasional night shift from 23:00 to 07:00, seven days per week, so shifts may fall anywhere in that timeframe.

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.

The Rocky Mountain Lodge team supports their staff with regular team huddles and Community Health Workers who offer peer support to new staff members. If you are looking for the opportunity to work guaranteed paid hours with a fun, supportive and progressive team, apply today!
