New Job

When school's over at the end of May, I will be free to work somewhere else. A good friend of mine has given me a recommendation for a home healthcare company in the area where I can take over some of the patients that are up in my area.

I "interviewed" at the company yesterday which was sort of a joke because it really wasn't an interview at all. It was more like a Q & A, and then I filled out the employment forms at the end. I knew I wanted to work there and evidently my friend gave me a good enough recommendation.
So that's that.

Starting June 1, I'll be going to the homes of my patients who aren't able to get to out-patient therapy. I'm really excited as home care is the true meaning of occupational therapy and most of my schooling was dedicated to this service model.

Not to mention that the pay is about 1/3 more than I make right now and the flexibility couldn't be better, as I schedule my own patients around my life, not me having to work when I've been scheduled. It's going to be really good I think.

That sounds like a good fit for you. Hope it is everything that you are wanting it to be. And you didn't have to pound the pavement to hard to find it; that is always an added bonus.

Way to go, I am so excited for you.
I hope that you enjoy it. I know that your patients will love you and your spunky attitude. I know that we loved the ladies that were working with Josh's grandma.
