Friday, June 26, 2020

As coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread around our country, it is critical we take steps to support and protect one another. Moving forward we will host phone interviews with the potential for on-the-spot job offers!

Many people go to work every day, wondering if they’re making a difference. Direct support professionals don’t wonder—they know they are.

Bring to work your empathy, compassion, good judgment and reliability —and we'll pay you while you learn everything you need to succeed on the job.

As a Direct Support Professional / Caregiver with Bethesda Lutheran Communities, you’ll assist individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities with their daily needs and activities.

Through the care you’ll give, the people we support will have the opportunity to reach their greatest level of independence.

What we want to see from you:

  • Ability to attend a mandatory 6 day (Wed-Fri the first week AND Mon-Wed the following week), 1st shift training

  • At least 18 years of age with a high school diploma or GED

  • Valid basic driver’s license, current auto insurance, and a good driving record

  • Ability to pass a background check and drug screen

What we have to offer you:

  • All trainings are paid, including Orientation, CPR and First Aid

  • Benefits offered to those scheduled for 30 hours/week or more!

  • A career that is recession-proof (and with an ever-growing demand)

  • Incredible connections with amazing people

What you’ll be doing:

Among other things, a DSP assists with routine daily activities in a group home setting. This could be:

  • helping residents with dining, mobility and hygiene activities

  • attending special community occasions and fun activities like outdoor walks, games and social events

  • sitting down to talk and connect with them

Being a DSP is interactive and active — no falling into a rut or being stuck at a desk. Every day is different at Bethesda. Our hope is that you come here every day with something to give—and leave with stories you never want to forget.

If this sounds like something you’d enjoy, apply today!
