Mary Margaret Sims honored for community efforts
Submitted By Human Relations Commission
Mary Margaret Sims, a veteran volunteer for LIFE ElderCare's Meals on Wheels program, has recently received a well-deserved award from the Fremont Human Relations Commission for outstanding contributions to our community.
Mary has been volunteering for LIFE ElderCare for the past twenty-one years, a significant amount of time to be giving of oneself and caring for others. At LIFE ElderCare she provides a variety of services for frail, homebound seniors. She is also a Community Ambassador for the City of Fremont Human Services Department, and is proficient in assessing her client's needs and offering recommendations and referrals when needed.
Seniors receive meal service with a heartwarming smile from Meals On Wheels when Mary comes calling. She has charm and grace and offers her assistance and support with obvious love and concern. These seniors have been accepted as "family" into her life and her visits are a blessed part of their day. She is able to take her service a step further by accompanying some seniors to their doctor appointments, which can be a stressful experience, fraught with spells of forgetfulness. Her support and care is essential to their wellbeing.
Mary is well loved and an inspiration and role model to those she serves and her co-workers. Her many years of service, experience and wisdom make Mary Margaret Sims an outstanding recipient for this Human Relations Commission award.
