ABOUT APTIV

Aptiv, established in 1976 as Riverfront Activity Center, was the idea of three friends from the community of La Crosse, WI to develop one organization that supported individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in all three primary needs--social, employment, and independent living. In the fall of 2017, we revealed a new name, new identity and a new brand ' Aptiv ' a positive blend of the words live, aptitude, active, and adaptive. Today, we support more than 1,700 people with disabilities through eight locations and across 42 counties in the state of Wisconsin.

Carrying out our mission of providing a spectrum of innovative support for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities so they may live more independent lives would not be possible without our amazing staff. We welcome their thoughts, opinions, and ideas, as we encourage an open, caring work culture. We also care about the health, wellbeing, and safety of our employees and promote a positive work-life balance with a flexible work environment.

A DAY IN THE LIFE AS A RESIDENTIAL SERVICE ASSOCIATE / DIRECT SUPPORT PROFESSIONAL (DSP) / CAREGIVER

While those tasks are important, you also provide companionship and socialization, as you support your clients in visiting with friends, attending events, or working on hobbies. You help them stay healthy in all areas by making sure that they are mentally stimulated, physically active, and well-nourished, encouraging their independence as much as possible.

You also ensure that their homes are safe environments, reducing the likelihood of accidents and promoting a timely response to illness as you monitor vital signs such as blood pressure, temperature, and pulse. You are meticulous about reporting any changes or concerns promptly.

You are also an advocate who ensures that their rights are respected at all times and that they aren't abused or neglected in any way. It's a good thing that you are so dependable, as their health and safety depends on you showing up for each and every shift.
