What will you do as a DSP?
Among other things you will:
- Join and help residents while they shop for groceries and run errands.
- Attend events in the community and special celebrations like birthday parties.
- Give medications and help with other treatments.
- Help individuals prepare meals, cook, clean, eat, take care of personal hygiene, and get around at home and outside.
Our DSPs have taken individuals bowling or to the movies. They go with them on vacation or watch the game at a sports bar. Some have been to Kings Island or to the casino. They often join individuals at church or volunteer events.
The goal is to help our residents feel and become as independent as possible while they live their daily lives.
What you’ll find, however, is that you end up forming relationships with the people you help that go far beyond “work” and end up feeling like family. Many of our DSPs call it the most fulfilling job they’ve ever done.
What you need to have:
- High School Diploma or GED
- Valid Ohio Driver’s License with fewer than 6 points on driving record
- 18 years of age or older
- Genuine caring and a passion for people—and the ability to find joy in watching others succeed with your help.
