Interior Health is one of six publicly funded health authorities in British Columbia. With more than 19,000 employees and nearly 1,600 physicians on our team, we are developing the future of health care through innovation and professional development.

Located in the Southern Interior of British Columbia, our beautiful region includes larger cities such as Kelowna, Kamloops, Penticton, and Vernon along with a multitude of rural communities such as Cranbrook, Golden, Ashcroft, and 100 Mile House. Interior Health is dedicated to providing the best possible service to our citizens with staff and physicians who are committed to teamwork and high quality patient care all playing an important part in our vision to set new standards of excellence in the delivery of health services in the Province of British Columbia....

The South Okanagan General Hospital is seeking several Community Health Workers to join their team! The ideal candidates will have completed a health care assistant program, current registration with the BC Care Aide Registry, and have a passion for providing client-centered care.

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 Casual opportunity. Casual means there are no guaranteed hours and work requirements may vary to a maximum of 40 hours per week. Services are provided in the community between the hours of 07:00 and 22:00, seven days per week so shifts may fall anywhere in that timeframe. At this time we are particularly seeking candidates with evening and weekend availability.

Because you are required to use your own vehicle to travel to clients’ houses, we provide an insurance differential as well as reimbursing your mileage.

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, South Okanagan General Hospital is the place for you. Apply today!

  • Grade 12
  • Graduation from a recognized Resident Care Aide/Home Support Worker Program, or an equivalent combination of education, training and relevant experience
  • BC Care Aide and Community Health Worker registry (please include your number)
  • Current valid BC Drivers’ License and use of a reliable vehicle
