Position Summary

Fernie Health Centre is seeking a Permanent Part Time Community Health Worker to join their team! The ideal candidate has completed a health care assistant program, current registration with the BC Care Aide Registry, and a passion for providing resident-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

• Meal preparation in accordance with designated plans
• Assistance with mobility and transfers
• Observing and reporting changes in client behaviour and condition

This is a Permanent Part Time vacancy working fixed evening shifts (16:00 to 22:00) on a rotating schedule:
Week 1 – Friday and Saturday (Sunday to Thursday off)
Week 2 – Friday to Tuesday (Wednesday and Thursday off)

We have recently adjusted our rotations in order to offer guaranteed paid hours to our permanent Community Health Workers regardless of how busy the department is that day!

In addition, because you are required to use your own vehicle to travel to clients’ houses, we provide an insurance differential as well as reimbursing your mileage. This position also qualifies for our full comprehensive benefits plan including health and welfare benefits, paid vacation and sick time and a great pension.

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.
