Based in residential settings, our DSP's provide assistance with daily activities ranging from meal preparation, personal hygiene, and medication administration, to accompanying individuals on outings in the community or providing transportation to work or other activities. The overnight shift includes checking on the residents, attending to any needs they may have, assisting with morning routine, and doing some cleaning and meal prep for the following day. In addition, our DSP's support therapeutic and behavioral plans, working closely with our clinical staff, to enhance the quality of life for those we support.
