    BAYADA Senior Living, a specialty program of BAYADA Home Health Care, is currently seeking an experienced Physical Therapist, PT, for an opportunity performing home health visits in senior living communities throughout Northampton County, PA.  

     

    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.
