Direct Support Professionals Week!
Governor Dayton has issued an official proclamation declaring the week of September 7-13, 2014 as Direct Support Professionals Week. By issuing this proclamation, Governor Dayton joins 32 other Governors as well as the mayor of Washington D.C. in recognizing the week as Direct Support Professionals Week.
Within the proclamation, Governor Dayton states: "Direct support professionals provide essential support that helps individuals with disabilities stay connected to family, friends and the community; and direct support professionals help individuals live meaningful, productive lives, and make it possible for them to live successfully in their communities."
Harry Meyering Center would like to thank Governor Dayton for issuing this Proclamation. We would also like to thank all of the DSPs who work at HMC and make a difference in the lives of the people they support. All of the DSPs at HMC, as well as around the state, deserve to be honored for the extraordinary work.
In honor of Donna, an individual we served who passed away due to ALS, some of our staff participated in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge along with Donna's sister Lynn.
A quote from the sister of a man served at the Homestead ICF:
"The Harry Meyering Center
has been a quality facility for my brother. He has been a resident for the past seven years. His needs have been met consistently by the staff with care, compassion, and a personal interest in him as an individual.
He is carefully watched medically. We have wonderful communication with the nursing staff.
The staff has also made accommodations for him to have additional experiences such as summer camp, participation in family weddings, shopping, and his love of going out for coffee!
My brother is living a rich, full life at HMC."
