BAYADA Home Health Care is currently seeking an experienced Occupational Therapist, OT for a per diem position performing home health visits within Senior Living Communities for our Lehigh Valley Senior Living office in Bethlehem, PA.  This office works with clients located in communities throughout Lehigh and Northampton Counties. 


BAYADA Senior Living offers a comprehensive continuum of care to its clients, including traditional home care under the Medicare Part A benefit, as well as outpatient therapy services under the Medicare Part B benefit.  The foundation of the program is exceptional clinical care and relationship management as BAYADA clinicians become a true healthcare partner in the senior living communities.  Communities include assisted living, independent living, senior congregate living, 55+ communities, and intermediate care facilities for clients with intellectual disabilities. 


The BAYADA Senior Living setting supports team collaboration for care of our clients on a real-time face-to-face basis.  Unlike traditional community home care, BAYADA Senior Living team members do not drive to multiple homes in a day.  They may work in one to three settings in a day, and have the benefit of getting to know the residents and staff of their communities, and seeing their clients’ progress after discharge from service.
