Seeking a Physical Therapist for a per diem or part-time weekend position in homecare. The rate is $85 per visit and each visit takes about an hour with direct care, paperwork and travel, so essentially you would be making $85 per hour. You will be paid the per diem rate for all of your visits and be guaranteed 10-15 visits per week (therapist's choice on how many). The therapist must be able to work a fairly consistent schedule like every Saturday or every Friday, Saturday and Sunday or 3 weekends a month-- something substantial. The therapist must also be willing to do most or all of the coverage area-- from Madison to Bridgeport and up to Waterbury and Meriden. You do NOT need experience in the home health care setting- we are willing to train therapists as long as they have one year practicing in any setting. This homecare position is also a very flexible job- you make your own schedule.
Requirements: Must have a degree in Physical Therapy and a license to practice PT in the state. Must also either be a US Citizen or have your green card -- no exceptions. You do not need home health experience, however you must have had you license for at least one year to practice in the homecare setting. We will entertain part-time or per diem Physical Therapy (PT) candidates who want to do 10-15 hours per week on the weekends at least 3 weekends per month.
