“In our homes, love, care, joy and spiritual well-being is practiced with the individuals, family and co-workers. And that’s what makes Bethesda a great place to work.”
- Staff comment from the Bethesda Community
At Bethesda, we are all about creating community among the people we support, our staff, and our surrounding communities. We are all interdependent as we experience life together, and all valuable for the abilities we share. We know we learn from and need each other. In your experience supporting people with disabilities, you see the people you support like family. That closeness and sharing that develops with a loving heart, where it is not always obvious who is helping whom anymore.
Do you have a heart for this vision and the skill to step into a new and challenging role? The Residential Support Worker position may be the next step in your journey.
