The BEINHAUER CAREGIVER EXCELLENCE AWARD for April was presented on May 24 to Kristin Prycl, Admissions Manager AND volunteer at VITAS Hospice.
Kristin was nominated as a truly excellent caregiver because she obviously puts the needs of hospice patients and their families first. Even though she is already busy with her job, her farm, and her family, she also does errands and grocery shopping for some patients who are themselves unable. All the while, Kristin is upbeat, enthusiastic, and full of energy — a delight to be around. The April Award for Excellence was presented to her by Katie Brandt, Beinhauer’s Community Outreach Director, in the presence of the Volunteer Coordinator for VITAS, Amanda Olson, who had nominated Kristin.
The Beinhauer Caregiver Excellence Award, newly awarded each month, consists of a $50 Visa gift card and a certificate, along with an entry into the drawing for the Caregiver Excellence Award of the Year.
–All area hospices, as well as the families they serve, are encouraged to nominate an excellent caregiver for this month’s award
