In two videos, direct support workers describe their jobs and speak frankly about the rewards and challenges of doing this type of work.

Two videos by the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services provide a realistic job preview for direct support workers who provide personal care or home health. The videos are designed to help potential job applicants decide if becoming a direct support worker is a job that is right for them. In each video, direct support workers describe their jobs and speak frankly about the rewards and challenges of this type of work.

The direct support videos address “Working with Older Adults and Individuals with Physical Disabilities” and “Working with People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities.” (These videos may not be available)
