The Beinhauer Caregiver Excellence Award for October

cea-for-october-2016-jpgThe BEINHAUER CAREGIVER EXCELLENCE AWARD for October was presented yesterday to Candy Pulaski, a Social Worker at Heartland Hospice in Pittsburgh.

Among all the nominations of hospice caregivers who have gone above and beyond in their duties, Candy’s nomination was especially moving. 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.

The Beinhauer Caregiver Excellence Award consists of a gift card and a certificate, along with an entry into the drawing for the Caregiver Excellence Award of the Year.

Candy was presented her award by Peg Cirocco, CFO of Beinhauer Family Funeral Homes and Cremation Services, and Katie Brandt, Beinhauer’s Community Outreach Director, at a staff meeting of Heartland Hospice.

Congratulations, Candy!

All area hospices, as well as the families they serve, are encouraged to nominate an excellent caregiver for next month’s award!

It’s quick and easy to fill out a nomination form, and it’s free!
