Physical Therapy Assistant - Assisted Living Cente
We are looking for a Physical Therapist Assistant PTA full-time in a Medical Adult Daycare and Assisted Living Facility setting. This Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA) need is in a medical adult day care, so it is a unique setting that most physical therapist assistants don't have the opportunity to work in. The attendees are patients that had a hospital stay and are well enough to go home, but still have some medical and rehab needs, so they go to this adult daycare to get therapy, nursing, and recreation needs filled. The medical adult day care facility has its own rehab room, friendly cooperative environment, and good interdisciplinary communication. We will only entertain PTAs who can do full-time hours. For full-time the PTA will be required to cover 1 Adult Daycare and up to 2 Assisted Living Facilities but only two each day-- one in the morning and one in the afternoon. The Physical Therapist Assistant will be paid for drive time in between buildings and have some freedom to get outside for a bit. The Adult Daycare is in the 21286 zip code and the Assisted living facilities are within a 10 mile radius of that. In addition, the schedule is very flexible. The Physical Therapist Assistant can start the day whenever the PTA chooses - even for full-time the physical therapy assistant is welcome to start anywhere from 8am to 10am for example and then work their day from there. The workday can be set up various ways depending on how many hours per week the physical therapist assistant is hired for. *Pay and Benefits for the Physical Therapist Assistant position:* -The Physical Therapist Assistant can get paid salary plus benefits, or the hourly per diem rate for up to full-time hours. Benefits start at 32 hours. If the physical therapist assistant wants salary with benefits, the usual pay is $27-$32/hr (56,000 to 67,000 per year). If the PTA would rather forgo benefits and do the higher hourly rate, the usual pay is 33-$36 per hour. -Health insurance -Paid Time Off (PTO) -Dental -Vision -401K with Retirement Plan -Electronic Charting -Continuing education benefit -Benefits start at 32 hours -An additional benefit of working in this setting is that there is very little or no lifting involved, as these patients are well enough to be living at home.
