Working at Southwinds
Southwinds’ Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) provide direct care to adults with developmental disabilities in their homes by assisting them to develop and maintain skills that promote their independence. Some of these individuals require a minimal amount of support such as assistance with household chores, getting ready for work, running errands, or going out in the community. Others may require a greater level of assistance with day-to-day tasks such as bathing, eating and getting dressed.
No experience is necessary for employment as a Direct Support Professional. Upon hire, staff are fully trained by Southwinds’ management team to prepare them to meet the needs of the individuals they will work with. Through our orientation program and on-site training, as well as annual training courses covering a variety of topics, our Direct Support Professionals are prepared to help the individuals who call Southwinds home live healthier and happier lives!
