This month we are spotlighting Delores C. who works in Kansas City as a DSP. She has been an ADC team member for over 17 years!! We appreciate Delores because she loves the residents and provides excellent personal care. She always pays attention to detail when it comes to their care and documentation. Delores took it upon herself to learn how to do all of the filing and paperwork for her home which is a great undertaking!
