Seeking to fill a Occupational Therapy (OTR) need full-time or part-time up to 30 hours per week at a Therapist Owned Center- VERY flexible schedule offered. We could use an Occupational Therapist (OTR) between 15 to 30 hours per week (Your choice in how many hours within that range) consistently every week. Benefits ARE provided at 30 hours per week. This Occupational Therapist (OTR) need is in a medical adult day care, so it is a unique setting that most therapists 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. Medical adult day care is a mixed population of 70% geriatric (including dementia), 25% developmentally disabled (mentally retarded), and 5% are traumatic brain injuries/other. The facility picks the patients up and brings them home at the end of the day. Each facility has its own rehab room, friendly cooperative environment, and good interdisciplinary communication.
The Occupational Therapist can get paid salary plus benefits, or the hourly per diem rate up to full-time 30 hours per week (your choice). If the candidate wants the hourly per diem rate, they can get $40 to $50 per hour without benefits and get paid up to 30 hours per week at that rate. Or the candidate can choose to get paid salary plus benefits-- The pay scale for that ranges from 68,000 to 85,000 per year for 40 hours per week so it would be proportionate for 30 hours. If the Occupational Therapist chooses full-time, they will be required to cover 3 Adult Daycares, however the OT will only do 2 per day (one in the morning and one in the afternoon) and they will be paid to travel in between including their time and mileage. The locations of the three Medical Adult Daycares are 4200 Edmondson Ave in Baltimore, 21229, Golden Days 4601 Hollins Ferry Rd, Halethorpe, MD 21227, and Mary T 1114 Benfield Blvd, Millersville, MD 21108. The OT must be willing to travel to all three for full-time/30 hours (but only 2 per day). For part-time the therapist will be required to cover two of the medical adult daycares. The Medical Adult Daycares are typically open from 8:30 to 2:30, but some stay open a little later. If your productivity is over the productivity for your amount of hours, the company will gladly pay a bonus/overtime. Patients can be seen together but we ask that a therapist not see more than 2 patients per hour. Treatments are a minimum of 38 minutes. The owners are both therapists themselves and are NOT interested in running a factory. They aim to be reasonable on productivity and take good care of the patients. They are also looking for therapists who can practice independently and handle their own schedule.
