Thank you, DSPs, for your extraordinary service during the coronavirus (COVID-19) public health emergency!
Each and every day, you are on the front line providing essential and person-centered care to individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities (I/DD) -- assisting with daily living tasks and providing tremendous emotional comfort and encouragement during this period of social distancing and isolation.
We deeply appreciate what you are doing to ensure members of Care Design NY have the supports and services they need to live a quality life. Thank you for your compassion, dedication and commitment!
Care Design NY salutes service providers and their dedicated Direct Support Professional (DSP) employees who are providing person-centered care to thousands of our members, individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities (I/DD), especially those who reside in group residences during this pandemic. The DSPs are critical to ensure the individuals they support in residences obtain the help they require including bathing, dressing, managing prescriptions, preparing meals including feeding those who need this assistance, offering encouragement, scheduling, transporting and accompanying them to medical appointments, communicating with family and friends, and doing everything they can to ensure their everyday needs are consistently met.
