We are currently seeking a Community Health Worker to join our team in Williams Lake Home Support. Do you pride yourself on your positive attitude and strong work ethics? Are you dedicated to delivering patient-centered care? If the answer is 'yes' then we want to hear from you!
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 are key players in the home health care plan for each client.
Typical duties include:
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 – 23:00 split into day and evening shifts, including weekdays and weekends. Many new employees start out in casual or temporary positions before being successful on a permanent position and having a long and rewarding career with Interior Health.
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 supporting your clients while working with a great team, Williams Lake home support is the place for you. Apply today!
