Have you completed a recognized course in recreation therapy? Do you have a valid Class 4 vehicle license? We are presently seeking new team members to join our Recreation Therapy Department at Polson Extended Care in Vernon.
Working within a client centered model, the Recreation Therapy Worker is a member of the interdisciplinary team and is responsible for the implementation and evaluation of an established Recreation Therapy Program.
As the Recreation Therapy Worker you will be primarily working with geriatric residents and short stay clients. This position assists in getting residents to/from their programs and carries out established leisure/recreation therapy programs. Staff go on outings with the residents and facilitate groups specific to the needs of the residents (i.e. social, physical, spiritual, etc.) including one-to-one programs. The Recreation Therapy Worker also reports relevant observations of resident progress and behavior to the Supervisor/Recreation Therapist and provides suggestions for changes or modifications to the existing programs.

This is a casual opportunity meaning hours are not guaranteed and may vary between 0 and 37.5 hrs per week. (Once hired into a casual role, employees are eligible to apply for internal postings including permanent part time or full time positions. There are many opportunities with Interior Health that begin with casual on-call positions and lead to regular employment.)
Come and join us! Our focus is on giving people room to grow, to make an impact in the lives of others.
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. Together, we create great workplaces. Be part of a dynamic team!
