Congratulations to January’s winner of the Beinhauer Caregiver Excellence Award (CEA)!
Beinhauer’s Community Outreach Director Katie Brandt, and Mario Chiodo, Volunteer of the Month of January.
The winner of the Caregiver Excellence Award (CEA) for Januay 2017 is Mario Chiodo, a volunteer at Family Hospice. He has been volunteering there since 1989 – interrupted only by a ten year-period, during which he cared for his cancer stricken wife until her death. Mario is a skilled barber, who brings a renewed sense of dignity and comfort to the patients he visits by giving them a fresh haircut or shave. He is kind, gracious, and humble, with a keen sense of humor and of appreciation. When you meet Mario, it is easy to see why the patients and families he gets in contact with truly respect and love him.
All area hospices are invited to submit nominations of caregivers of excellence!
On Tuesday, January 31st, about a dozen community outreach and marketing professionals participated in a Goal Setting workshop led by Senior Consultant Betty Karleski in the Community Room at the Peters Township Beinhauer facility.
There was plenty of space for composing collages, which illustrated the various goals important to the workshop participants.
The Community Room is available at no cost to the community for any kind of free workshop or meeting.

The BEINHAUER CAREGIVER EXCELLENCE AWARD for November was presented on December 21st to Mary Eichner, a Registered Nurse at Seven Oaks Hospice Care.
We actually received several nominations of caregivers at Seven Oaks HospiceCare who had gone above and beyond in their duties last month!
Even though they each were deserving of recognition, Mary stood out as “one of a kind.” Her selfless dedication to her patients has been apparent both to the families she has been working with, and to the colleagues who saw her in action.
