The management team of IDD programs in Merakey Chester and Delaware Counties wanted to do something extra special for their Direct Support Professionals in light of COVID-19. In addition to personal calls to each Direct Support Professional on a regular basis to ensure that staff members were doing ok, care packages containing masks, games, puzzles, arts and crafts, and games to play outdoors were distributed to show appreciation for their staff members’ dedication and support of the Merakey mission. These gestures prompted many DSPs to call their managers, program specialists, and directors to personally say thank you.
The IDD management team of Chester and Delaware Counties wishes to thank every DSP for all that they are doing during this challenging time. Staff have changed the lives of people Merakey supports, as well as the lives of managers who are in awe of what they do every day.
