Caregiver Excellence Award – May 2017

May Caregiver Excellence Award Winner, Chuck Hier, and Beinhauer Director of Community Outreach, Katie Brandt.
The BEINHAUER CAREGIVER EXCELLENCE AWARD for Maywas presented on June 27 to
Chuck Hier, volunteer at Interim Hospice.
Congratulations, Chuck!
Chuck Hier is a history professor whose love of preserving and sharing memories led him to create a Memoir Program, which was added last year to the volunteer services that Interim Hospice offers. Often families wish they had written down old stories of days and events gone by… Chuck does exactly that for them. He gives each storyteller a caring and safe environment to communicate special memories, and he then turns his notes into a Memoir Booklet. After approval from the storyteller, the booklet is then printed for that patient and for his or her family, or for anyone else the patient wishes to share his Memoirs with. This program has been a big hit! Chuck’s thoughtful and caring manner, and his ear for detail, make him an ideal listener, historian, and caregiver.
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 theCaregiver Excellence Award of the Year.
