March is National Social Work Month. Social Workers ARE Essential.
Social workers provide services that include helpful information to guide families during the end of life journey. As needs are identified, the social worker assists the patient and family with coping strategies that may include emotional, social, financial or spiritual assistance.
Our compassionate team of social workers coordinates services for the Hospice home care and residence program, as well as in a community-based palliative care setting. Daily, they provide supportive counseling, anticipatory guidance and assistance to patients and their families with personal, psychosocial, psychoeducation, and environmental difficulties related to the patient’s terminal or serious illness.
We love our social workers. Thank you for all you do every day!
