    Full Time Opportunity Available - Centre County Area


    Grane Home Health Care, one of the leading providers of innovative, versatile home health care, seeks an experienced, hands-on Physical Therapist to oversee the development and implementation of therapy plans, in conjunction with internal and external care providers. This role is ideal for an equally innovative care professional, with strong experience and a proven track record of inventive, interdisciplinary success and a desire to help elderly patients gain increased self-reliance and the highest possible quality of life.  


    At Grane Home Health Care, our mission to provide rehabilitative care to patients so that they may independently function at the highest level they can achieve. With each patient interaction, we strive to become the leading provider of Home Health Care and Hospice Care, offering patients, families, and caregivers high satisfaction through strong clinical outcomes and our innovative approach tied to the center’s core values: devotion, honesty, dignity, and respect.


    The Physical Therapy position requires a variety of day-to-day and ongoing tasks and responsibilities, including:

    • Initiating diagnostic assessments and new patient evaluations, and developing specific care plans and therapeutic services 
    • Maintaining a weekly schedule of in-home visits to aid and assess patients
    • Carrying out in-home diagnostic, preventative and rehabilitative processes  
    • Treating patients to relieve pain, develop and restore function and maintain maximum performance, using diverse treatments, modalities and procedures
    • Providing ongoing evaluations and assessments to gauge patient progress and revised needs
    • Observing and reporting changes in patients’ conditions, and adjusting care plans accordingly
    • Assessing home environments and programs with patients, families and caregivers to promote family-centered therapeutic practices, and train participants as needed
    • Aiding in billing services, including time-based codes, RUGS, MDS rules and other standard practices
    • Making referrals to internal and external care providers, as needed
    • Holding ongoing caregiver and family meetings to discuss patient care and treatment plans
    • Ordering and/or fabricating adaptive/assistive devices and durable medical equipment, as needed
    • Supervising Physical Therapist Assistants and aiding in their growth and development


    This role requires significant, hands-on work with an elderly population, so in addition to having direct geriatric experience, compassion, patience, flexibility and the ability to teach is essential to this role. All candidates should have a B.S. degree in a relevant field, plus the successful completion of an accredited physical therapy school. Current licensing and CPR certification is required, as is a valid driver’s license and 1-3 years’ experience in an in-home setting. A master’s degree in physical therapy and McKesson software experience is preferred, but not required.
