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!
