Your Opportunity:

Alberta Health Services (AHS) needs a caring individual who is passionate about helping others. This key role has a massive impact on the well-being of our patients by providing safe, quality patient and family-centered care. You will provide personal care by supporting activities of daily living, assisting in patient assessments and procedures, providing comfort measures to patients and their families, portering, delivering specimens to labs, some cleaning, and simple charting in patient records. You will work closely with patients, families, caregivers, and all members of the health care team. The Town of Edson is located approximately 190 km west of Edmonton - close enough to visit friends and families on the weekends and holidays! With only 163 km (about two hours drive) from Jasper National Park, Edson is a perfect home base for your outdoor adventures. Hike, bike, or fish the best spots at nearby lakeshores after work or take a day trip on your days off. Edson is a young, multicultural town offering a small-town feel but close to the big city amenities. In addition to Public and Catholic K-12 schools, the town offers arts, cultural, and social activities for everyone. AHS is proud to be part of Canada’s first and largest fully integrated provincial healthcare system, serving over 4.4 million Albertans. We are among Alberta’s Top 75 Employers and a top employer for young people and diversity. With opportunities for professional development, competitive pay and comprehensive benefits, discover a whole different professional practice – and way of life – in the cozy town of Edson.


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.
