As part of our commitment to the individuals we serve, D&S has developed specialized services, departments, and programs to help everyone involved – the individual, their family, and D&S staff – contribute to an environment of success and fulfillment.
D&S’ unique services and programs include:
Person Centered Thinking Approach- Person Centered Thinking is a specialized training and certification program instituted throughout D&S that uses a variety of tools and skills to discover what is important to and for an individual to help them live a better life.
QA Training and Programs- Our formal and comprehensive Quality Assurance (QA) Program administered by an in-house team of QA professional auditors and registered nurses ensures quality services and high levels of regulatory compliance.
