Your Opportunity:

Please note this facility provides Long Term Care (LTC) or Designated Supportive Living (DSL) services, and by Order of the Chief Medical Officer of Health, many AHS employees are restricted to work only at a single LTC/DSL site for the remainder of the pandemic. Speak to the hiring manager, who will confirm if, as the successful candidate in this position, you will be restricted to work at only one LTC/DLS site in Alberta. If you like small-town living and enjoy working with the elderly, then this position in Oyen might be for you! Big Country Hospital, Continuing Care Unit, is a 30-bed unit located in a rural setting where you will work within an interdisciplinary team environment to provide client-centred care. Home to approximately 1,070 residents, Oyen is located in southeastern Alberta, 297 km from Calgary and 40 km from the Saskatchewan border. The main industries include farming, ranching, oil and gas, along with a growing tourism sector. There’s a range of shops and restaurants to choose from, with the largest single employer in town being Alberta Health Services’ two facilities, the Big Country Hospital and Oyen Community Health Services.


As a Health Care Aide (HCA), you are responsible for providing personal assistance, supporting activities of daily living and providing comfort and support services to patients (clients, residents) who require short-term assistance or ongoing support. You will work closely with patients, families, and caregivers spanning the continuum of care in home, community or health care facilities. You will play a key role in providing safe, quality patient and family centered care while reflecting the shared vision and values of AHS.
