Logan Lake is a picturesque town located in the Highland Valley. Surrounded by forested rolling hills punctuated by lakes and rivers, Logan Lake is in the heart of BC. Incorporated in the 1970's with quality of life in mind, Logan Lake has since expanded amenities and provides excellent access to the wilderness that makes BC a great place to explore.
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. Hours of services range from 07:00 – 22:00 split into day and evening shifts, including weekdays and weekends.
If you are interested in the opportunity to build a strong connection with your clients while working with a great supportive team, apply today!
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!
Come and join us! Our focus is on giving people room to grow, to make an impact in the lives of others.
