Position Summary

We are currently seeking a Permanent Part Time 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.

This is a Permanent Part Time opportunity with a shift window of 16:00 to 23:00 working approximately 25 hours per week (hours are dependent on client hours and are not guaranteed). Shift days are Wednesday to Sunday each week with Monday and Tuesday off.

This position is eligible for a fantastic employer paid benefit plan including medical, dental, group life insurance, pension and of course, plenty of vacation.

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 Armstrong Health Centre is the place for you. Apply today!
