MaLisa is looking for a DSP who is friendly, dependable, patient and can assist her with some daily living activities. She utilizes an electric wheelchair to get around and uses signs and gestures to communicate. Once she is familiar with a person, she will come to them and start communicating. MaLisa loves to listen to music and can often be heard humming Christmas tunes throughout the day. On her downtime she likes to watch videos on her IPAD and move about in her chair.
Perry is looking for a DSP who is an excellent communicator, dependable, caring, and creative. He enjoys relaxed activities like playing the piano, arts & crafts, or something sensory related. Perry has volunteered in the past and would like the opportunity to do so again in the future. He needs some assistance while navigating in his community but is self-sufficient with daily living activities! Most importantly, the DSP must be attentive and can help Perry explore and be involved in more activities.
The position is 40 hours per week, 25hrs with MaLisa and 15hrs with Perry. Monday-Friday from 8:00am-4:00pm. If you are interested in working with MaLisa and Perry, please apply today!
