COMMUNITY HEALTH WORKER

Apply Now Job ID 1290431 Date posted 07/31/2019
Job title :COMMUNITY HEALTH WORKER
Community :ENDERBY
Facility :ENDERBY HEALTH CENTRE
Status :CASUAL
Position Summary

We are currently seeking several casual Community Health Workers to join our team at the Enderby Health Centre.

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.

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.

This position requires a valid BC drivers license and a reliable vehicle as we visit clients in their homes in Armstrong, Enderby, Falkland, Grinrod, Mara Lake, and surrounding areas.

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

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!

We are excited to announce that Interior Health Home Support scheduling is in the process of upgrading to a modernized scheduling software called Procura. This will increase workplace safety while making it easier for our CHWs to get the information they need when they need it. That includes updates to schedules, offers of shifts, automated mileage claims and flowsheets, hazard notifications all in real time. One of the biggest perks is that we are providing iPhones to ALL of our CHWs that work more than 8 hours/week with the option to upgrade for personal use at a cost of only $25/month! This will be rolling out to each of our Home Support offices over the rest of the year.

If you are looking for an opportunity to do meaningful work while joining a great team, the Enderby Health Centre is the place for you. Apply today!
