What Interior Health Authority is Hiring for:

Position Summary

We are currently seeking Community Health Workers to join our teams in beautiful, rural interior BC! Are you dedicated to delivering patient-centered care? Are you looking for a flexible work schedule? Do you want to live in a uniquely beautiful part of BC? If the answer is 'yes' then we want to hear from you!

The Rural TCS region boasts dry climates, relaxing lifestyles and affordable housing. Outdoor recreational opportunities include rafting, river or lake fishing, camping, swimming, hiking, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling. Rural TCS is definitely a destination of unique and exciting adventures, and the mild seasons of the area make Rural TCS a wonderful playground, abounding with magnificent scenery.

We have multiple casual opportunities in Ashcroft, Lillooet, and Lytton! 
  • Casual Community Health Worker - Ashcroft
  • Casual Community Health Worker - Lillooet
  • Casual Community Health Worker - Lytton

Casual means there are no guaranteed hours and work requirements may vary to a maximum of 37.5 hours per week. At this time there are plenty of hours available across the region, and a successful applicant would likely have the benefit of being offered up to full time hours. Many applicants start out with Interior Health in a casual capacity but are quickly successful on a permanent position, entitling them to employer paid benefits and banked time off for sick and vacation. This is a great way to start your career with Interior Health.

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

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, Lytton Home Support is the place for you. 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.
