National Direct Support Professional Recognition Week 2021

September 12th-18th is National Direct Support Professional Recognition Week! Although DSP’s deserve to be recognized & appreciated all year long, this week gives us an opportunity to spotlight our DSP’s, Team Managers & Service Coordinators who work hands-on with our clients. To celebrate, LIFEDesigns is hosting a special raffle with a variety of prizes for staff members to win. We are also sharing stories from some of our Direct Support Professionals on social media, so make sure to keep an eye out to learn more about the heroes at LIFEDesigns!

We want to thank the Direct Support Professionals at LIFEDesigns and across the nation for all you do. This is not an easy job, and we could not thank them enough for providing the necessary services individuals with disabilities need to achieve independence. Thank you for being here & thank you for staying here! We truly appreciate all that our DSPs do. Happy #DSPRW21!!

Our DSPs are central to LIFEDesigns. They work hands on with our clients as mentors and role models:
  • supporting individuals to engage in all daily activities,
  • ensuring consistency in implementation of established Individual Support Plans (ISP), high risk/nursing plans, and Behavior Support Plans (BSP) objectives,
  • following all safety and health-related policies and procedures,
  • and so much more.
