In Honor of Our Caregivers: Thank You! Direct Support Professionals Recognition Week

Direct support professionals help individuals with physical and mental disabilities to live meaningful, productive lives in their communities and to avoid costly institutional services. They build close relationships with the people they serve, who rely on them for assistance with tasks such as eating, bathing, dressing, taking medications, overcoming mobility issues, and attending school, work, religious, and recreational activities.

We join the the State of Texas and communities across the nation in extending profound thanks to those who accept this demanding yet rewarding role, for their contributions are indispensable to countless of their fellow citizens.

Direct support professionals enhance the lives of tens of thousands of Texans. Please join the Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS) in observing Direct Support Professionals Recognition Week and honoring these workers’ vital contributions to the people of our state.
