DSPs Are the Key

September 11-17 is national Direct Support Professionals Recognition Week, and Adelante will be celebrating the terrific staff members who bring our mission to life every day. We’re handing out small gifts and notes of appreciation for the skills and patience they demonstrate on a daily basis.

The important part of what we do as an organization is done by Direct Support Professionals (or DSPs as they are also known). They are the ones who provide hands-on care to people with disabilities and seniors, helping them be safe and successful at work and at home, and throughout the community. DSPs support people in taking their medications, provide personal care, and offer encouragement in everything from creative art to new job skills. In fact, more than half of Adelante employees are DSPs who work hands-on with clients, and we value what they do.

Please make a point to stop and say “thank you” to the DSPs you know who are making a difference in the lives of people you care about. As we post DSP celebrations on Adelante’s Facebook page and Twitter feed, please feel free to chime in and share your appreciation, too. #DSP2016 @GoAdelante.

Thank you, Adelante DSPs, for making a difference for the people we support. You’re the best!
