Business: Interior Health Authority
Address: Ashcroft, BC
Job title: COMMUNITY HEALTH WORKER
Facility: ASHCROFT HSPTL & HLTH CTR
Status: RELIEF PART TIME (0.48 FTE)
We are currently seeking a Community Health Worker to join our team in Ashcroft Home Support. Are you dedicated to delivering patient-centered care? Are you looking for a flexible work schedule? 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.
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 temporary part-time (0.48) vacancy until return of incumbent. Shifts are rotating evenings with shift times of 16:00 to 20:00.
This position requires a valid BC driver’s license and a reliable vehicle as we visit clients in their homes in Ashcroft, Cache Creek, Clinton, Walhachin, Spences Bridge, and surrounding areas.
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 Ashcroft Hospital & Health Centre is the place for you. Apply today!
