Employer Name: 
Interior Health Authority - Boundary Hospital
Job Location: 
Grand Forks, BC

Do you pride yourself on your positive attitude and strong work ethics? Are you dedicated to delivering patient-centered care? Then we want you to come join our team in Grand Forks home support.

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.

We are currently seeking several new casual employees for both pre-booked and short call shifts; we are particularly in need of applicants with evening and weekend availability. Experience with mental health and dementia clients would be an asset as well.

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 Casual opportunity. Casual means there are no guaranteed hours and work requirements may vary to a maximum of 40 hours per week. We service clients between 08:00 to 21:00 so as a casual you may be called for shifts anywhere within that timeframe depending on the needs of the department.

If you are interested in the opportunity to build a strong connection with your clients while working with a great supportive team, 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.
