Relief Direct Support Professional

Wayne ARC
I was responsible for maintaining a safe, supportive, and therapeutic environment which fosters growth and rehabilitation and facilitates the development of mutual aid/self help skills among individuals.  My primary role was to provide the appropriate supports tailored to the needs and desires of each individual to enable each to live as independently as possible.  I was expected to recognize when an individual was in a crisis and be able to utilize the appropriate psychiatric and medical back up services.
