Position Summary

Do you pride yourself on your positive attitude and strong work ethics? Are you dedicated to delivering patient-centered care? Then we want you to come join our team at Lytton Home Support!

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

Services are provided 7 days a week in the community so you may be called in any day of the week (as a casual, there are no guaranteed hours and work requirements may vary to a maximum of 40 hours per week). Hours of service are 07:00 to 22:00.

Because you are required to use your own vehicle to travel to clients’ homes, we reimburse your mileage (note: only travel to clients’ homes will be reimbursed, not travel to Lytton for work).

If you are looking for the opportunity to work guaranteed paid hours in a beautiful rural setting, apply today!
