CANDACE’S FAVORITE OR MOST REWARDING PART ABOUT BEING A DSP: Candy’s favorite part about being a DSP is when the individuals smile and laugh.  Seeing them happy makes her happy.  She feels from the bottom of her heart that it is a privilege to be a part of their lives.

ABOUT CANDACE: Kindness, compassion, dedication, person-first standard, empathy, sincere involvement and care with each person she works with.  Those are the words and phrases used to describe Candace, or Candy, as she is called at Lancaster SOIRA.

John Hogan, TTL says “Candy Devaney is “caught” doing the right thing on a regular basis.  She always interacts with the individuals in a kind, compassionate manner, and strives to provide a rich, nourishing environment in which the individuals are happy, encouraged and trusting.  She is a tremendous example for us all.”
