Position Summary

Due to a recent change in our rotations we have MULTIPLE CASUAL AND PERMANENT PART TIME Community Health Worker positions available on our Kelowna Home Support team. 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.

Services are provided 7 days a week in the community so as a casual you may be called in any day of the week. Hours of services are primarily 07:00 to 23:00 with occasionally night shifts; at this time we are particularly seeking candidates with at least 5 days/week of availability including 1 weekend day (we also utilize split shifts). The permanent positions will have a rotating schedule and will be eligible for our full comprehensive benefits package including health and welfare benefits, paid sick and 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
