Meet the 2016 Spirit of CARIE Award Recipients
The Spirit of CARIE award was established in 2003 on the occasion of CARIE’s 25th anniversary. The award is given each year to an individual or individuals who exemplify CARIE’s mission through their individual advocacy, education, research, and/or public policy work on behalf of older persons and whose work has earned them the respect of their peers and the public. This year's recipients of the Spirit of CARIE award are:
Philip Marshall, BA, MS
Philip Marshall brought national and international focus to the issue of elder abuse through his advocacy on behalf of his grandmother, Brooke Astor. Following his grandmother's death, Mr. Marshall has committed himself to promoting issues of elder justice and to increasing awareness and prevention of elder abuse, neglect and financial exploitation. In recognizing that the struggle for the safety, rights and dignity of his grandmother is a struggle faced by elders and family members regardless of circumstances, and in lending his voice, his time and his effort to advocating for protections on behalf of all older adults, Mr. Marshall personifies the Spirit of CARIE.
Beryl Goldman, PhD, MS, RN, NHA
For almost three decades, Beryl Goldman has played a critical role in the development, adoption and expansion of safe, restraint-free long term care environments. As a leading voice in the field of restraint reduction she has provided testimony before Congress on the Untie the Elderly initiative and has overseen the Pennsylvania Restraint Reduction Initiative, served as outreach leader of the national Hospital Bed Safety Workgroup and directed the implementation portion of the Pennsylvania Department of Health's Best Practices Project. Her work contributed to a sea change in attitudes toward the use of restraints in long term care settings. Currently serving as the Director of Kendal Outreach, LLC, Mrs. Goldman's vision and persistent efforts to realize safe and compassionate restraint-free care for our most vulnerable elders reflects the true Spirit of CARIE.
