Operating a residential program requires around-the-clock staffing by a variety of skilled, flexible people who, at Hilltop, are capable of "wearing many hats." Hilltop's current staff includes an Executive Director, Clinical Director, Program Director, Qualified Intellectual Disabilities Professionals (QIDP), Residence Manager, Staff Nurses, a Registered Dietitian, Special Education Teachers, Direct Support Professionals (DSP), Dietary Technicians, Housekeepers, and Administrative Staff. Also on staff is a reliable force of part-time employees. In addition, Hilltop has a complete therapy department with physical, occupational, speech, and respiratory therapy. Hilltop also contracts with community providers for nutrition and psychological services.
Our staff members have diverse backgrounds, but we are proud of a common thread for many staff—previous experience with persons with disabilities. This experience builds a firm foundation of expertise for our program. Hilltop also takes pride in our low staff turn-over rate. Our families value this stability, often relaying how comforting it is to know that long-term personnel are caring for their children.
