Nominate Your Caregiver!

A row of people's heads who are looking up at who will win the first ever DSP of the year text.

The Care Network understands how important Direct Support Professionals (DSP) are to helping people maximize their independence in their home and community. Across the nation, dedicated DSPs provide essential caregiving and give individuals the needed support to live the life they want.

We invite you to nominate a caregiver for the “DSP of the Year” award. We are looking for DSPs whose work goes above and beyond – DSPs who make a difference every day.

Selected DSPs receive $150 bonus!

Donation to the Food Bank

Last week, Missouri Consumer Direct volunteered their time at The Food Bank for Central and Northeast Missouri and made a cash donation. Joined by Consumer Direct’s Owner, Bill Woody, and Consumer Direct’s Chief Operating Officer, Beth Peterson, we enjoyed giving back. It was a great day!

Call for Volunteers in National Research Study

The National Resource Center for Participant Directed Services (NRCPDS) is recruiting volunteers for their research study, Preserving the Continuity and Quality of Self-Directed Supports throughout the Lifespan of Individuals with Developmental and/or Intellectual Disabilities: A Parent’s Perspective.

In this study, they hope to learn what aging parents currently do to support their child with a developmental and/or intellectual disability in directing their own services, as well as what plans and concerns they have for the future.

This is for program participants who are 21 years or older. If you are interested please see the NRCPDS Recruitment Flyer and contact them directly.
