Position Summary

Do you pride yourself on your positive attitude and adaptability? Are you dedicated to delivering patient-centered care? Then we want you to come join our team at Deni House in Williams Lake!
Deni House provides excellent long-term care in a home-like environment overlooking the City of Williams Lake in the heart of the Cariboo. We are located adjacent to Cariboo Memorial Hospital.

The name “Deni House” was chosen for its significance to the Cariboo. Deni is the Chilcotin word meaning “People” or “All the People.” The word “House” was chosen due to historical significance from the days of the Cariboo Gold Rush and the way stations along the gold rush trail used as places of refuge and rest for weary people. Deni House means “A House for Our People.” Deni House is home to 19 permanent clients and includes 9 short-stay beds offering respite, convalescent and palliative care.

As the Long-term Care Attendant (LTCA) you will work as an integral part of a dynamic, multi-disciplinary team, who provide care and support in a long-term care setting. Working under the direction of RN’s and LPN’s, LTCA’s have key responsibilities in the individual care plan for each person, ensuring their physical, emotional and social needs are supported, while promoting maximum independence.

Typical duties include:
• Assist clients with personal care and activities of daily living

• Perform nursing procedures such as taking temperature, pulse and respiration
• Housekeeping activities relating to maintaining a safe and healthy environment
• Observe and report changes in behavior and condition
• Accompany clients on outings and during social activities
• Perform clerical duties and delegated tasks

This is a Casual opportunity. Casual means there are no guaranteed hours and work requirements may vary to a maximum of 37.5 hours per week. We are particularly seeking candidates with good short-tern availability.
Many new employees start out in casual or temporary positions before being successful on a permanent position and having a long and rewarding career with Interior Health. This is your opportunity to join a great team who really cares about their clients and their community. Apply today!

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. Together, we create great workplaces.
