Position Summary

Have you completed a recognized course in recreation therapy? Do you have a valid Class 4 vehicle license? We are presently seeking new team members to join our Recreation Therapy Department at Gillis House in Merritt.

Working within a client centered model, the Recreation Therapy Worker is a member of the interdisciplinary team and is responsible for the implementation and evaluation of an established Recreation Therapy Program.

As the Recreation Therapy Worker you will be primarily working with geriatric residents and short stay clients. This position assists in getting residents to/from their programs and carries out established leisure/recreation therapy programs. Staff go on outings with the residents and facilitate groups specific to the needs of the residents (i.e. social, physical, spiritual, etc.) including one-to-one programs.

There are many opportunities with Interior Health that begin with casual on-call positions and lead to regular employment.)

Come and join us! Our focus is on giving people room to grow, to make an impact in the lives of others.
