RN Full-time (Health and Wellness Coach)

CONNECT Partners


We are looking for just the right RN to support people to redesign their lives as they transition from institutional living into community and start to create a life with more independence and choice.


CONNECT Partners will be supporting 44 individuals who are moving out of the George Pearson Centre (institutional care) into their own homes in the Cambie Gardens apartments (some single occupancy, most shared in 4- and 6-bedroom arrangements). We will support these individuals, all of whom have complex health needs with varying levels of independence and all of whom are in wheelchairs, as they move into community and start to build lives with more choice and autonomy.

· At the Cambie Gardens apartments we will be working between 12 apartment units within two neighbouring towers. 8 of those apartments are group homes with 4 bedrooms or 6 bedrooms.

· Each person we support will have their own bedroom and bathroom with ceiling lifts installed.

· There are support staff (Life Redesign Coaches) in each apartment 24/7. There is also a full professional coaching team, including OT, PT, SLP, Social Worker, Recreation Therapy.

· As a Health and Wellness Coach (LPN/RN) you will have a dynamic role. You will be moving between both buildings as needed to support with more complex clinical work that the support staff are unable to do. Your role will include hands on with residents, supporting the staff, and opportunities to engage the people we support and their families.

· We will provide additional tracheostomy and ventilator training.

The Health and Wellness Coach serves as a nurse, coach, mentor and teacher for the people we support, families, and co-workers, informs the development of appropriate support strategies for individuals and staff, providing nursing skills as needed for the individual’s health care needs and lifestyle choices.

The Health and Wellness Coach contributes to CONNECT Partners’ orientation and continuous learning program, and helps build on standards for excellence, and commitment to continuous quality improvement.
