For some, they may be the eyes of those unable to see, or the voice for those who can't speak. For others, they are friend, cheerleader and subtle support on the path to one's true potential. For Delaware MENTOR and The MENTOR Network the DSP is one of the most exemplary reflections of the wonderful mission driven work we do here every day. The people that carry out this rewarding, care giving support play an integral and crucial role in the success of our organization. To that end, the DSP also happens to be one of the best places to start in our company with a myriad of career options to move up and across the organization. We in fact have many success stories from people at all levels that started out in the DSP role. Whether you have previous experience in this capacity or this just sounds like the type of career path you would like to pursue we want to hear from you! Delaware MENTOR is seeking Direct Support Professionals/Caregivers to provide assistance to individuals with disabilities in a community-based setting. DSPs provide assistance with daily activities such as meal preparation and planning; medication administration; and personal care. DSPs may also facilitate community involvement by accompanying individuals on outings in the community or providing transportation to work or other activities. In addition, DSPs support therapeutic and behavioral plans in partnership with clinical staff to enhance the quality of life for those we support.
