September 13-19, 2020, is Direct Support Professionals Recognition Week! It’s a time to celebrate and acknowledge Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) who assist, support, and care for individuals who require help in their daily lives.
A proclamation was issued by Governor Wolf to recognize and appreciate the dedication and contributions DSPs make in the lives of the elderly, veterans, and those with intellectual, developmental, or other disabilities.
Mark Davis, President and CEO of PAR (Pennsylvania Advocacy and Resources for Autism and Intellectual Disability) states, “This year’s proclamation is particularly important as DSPs have made sacrifices during the COVID-19 pandemic to keep the individuals they support healthy, happy, and safe.” Davis continued, Some DSPs have lost their lives or lost loved ones during the pandemic. DSPs have stepped up to the plate in a major way in Pennsylvania and we thank Governor Wolf for taking this step to honor them.”
Our work wouldn’t be possible without the tremendous support of our Direct Support Professionals. We are very grateful to have them as part of the Casmir Care Services family!
