Direct Support Professional Spotlight: Rose
It’s officially Direct Support Professional Recognition Week, when we shine a light on the dedicated, innovative direct support workforce that is the heart and soul of supports for people with disabilities! In honor of the occasion, our team here at Search is highlighting a few of our incredible DSPs.
Roseline (Rose), is a DSP at our Concord house CILA. She works hard every day to ensure that the individuals she supports are happy and healthy.
Laura, QIDP at Concord House, says that “Rose is an amazing person and DSP. She is very reliable and always willing to help out when needed. Rose really stepped up during the pandemic by taking a live-in position and caring for individuals who were sheltering at home. Rose makes sure everyone she works with has their wants and needs met, and helps them have fun in the process. She’s caring, compassionate, and incredibly helpful.”
