Our most common openings are described below.
A Direct Support Professional (DSP) supports people with a developmental disability or acquired brain disorder to live full and inclusive lives in their community. DSPs help a person develop their strengths, gifts and potential while also helping to remove barriers that could prevent a person reaching their goals. In addition to supporting people with disabilities in community outings, DPSs also help a person make healthy meal choices, assist with household chores and personal care and provide transportation. Qualifications include a strong ethical foundation, dedication, creativity, commitment to building relationships and the ability to work as part of a team.
A Job Coach/Vocational Trainer (JC/VT) supports adults with a developmental disability or acquired brain disorder in their place of employment. Responsibilities of a JC/VT include helping individuals learn how to do their job and assisting when needed, problem solving, organizing the workflow and in some cases provide transportation. Qualifications include a strong ethical foundation, dedication, creativity and the ability to work as part of a team.
A Service Coordinator (SC) works with either children or adults with developmental disabilities or acquired brain disorders. The position entails monthly interactions with all the individuals, their families and their providers who are the SC’s caseload. SCs coordinate and facilitate team meetings and annual service agreements in accordance with regulatory guidelines. SCs are responsible for coordinating, monitoring and reviewing quality of services through visits and reviewing documentation.
A Respite Provider helps families and Home Care Providers who are the primary caretakers of a child or an adult with a developmental disability or acquired brain disorder. Respite care can happen in the community, at the Respite Provider’s home or the individual’s home. The responsibilities and qualifications of a Respite Provider are similar to that of a Direct Support Professional, just on a less frequent basis.
A Home Care Provider (HCP) shares their home with a person who has a developmental disability or acquired brain disorder. HCPs provide a family environment for people who are unable to live alone. Qualities such as patience, common sense and genuine acceptance of the person with the disability are essential to a successful experience and relationship. HCPs can be married or single, have children and/or pets and are not required to own their own home. MDS supports a diverse population of people, each one preferring a unique type of living situation.
