Today our sympathies are with the Weinreis family. Candy was a Coordinator at Homecare Services for a number of years and also one of the Peggy Fritz Spirit of Service Award winners. Below is a portion of the write-up from when Candy was the recipient of the Peggy Fritz Spirit of Service Award in 2011.
The nomination for Weinreis read, “Candy has been with Homecare Services for 9 years. Individuals who work in long term care understand that it takes a special person. Candy’s unwavering commitment is partially demonstrated by years of service alone. The way in which she has approached this mission of helping people throughout those 9 years, however, is probably the greatest testament to Candy’s unwavering commitment. She has never lost her enthusiasm for helping others. Sit down and visit with Candy for 5 minutes; it does not take long to sense her sincere and compassionate nature. For Candy her work is more than just a job it seems to be a calling and something she takes seriously and cares deeply about”. The nomination went on to say, “Candy lives life to the fullest and her zest for life spills over into her work. Candy’s enthusiasm for life and living cannot help but impact the way in which she does her job. Candy approaches taking care of others in the same manner she approaches life – she gives it everything she has. This enthusiasm positively impacts both consumers and employees of Homecare Services.
