March is National Social Work Month and an important time to recognize and express appreciation for the social workers who are central to our Quality of Life Teams.
Our hospice social workers help patients and families address the practical and emotional issues that come with serious illness.
Social workers bring knowledge and expertise in working with ethnic, cultural, and economic diversity. They are familiar with navigating the complexities of health care systems. They understand bereavement and are focused on enhancing quality of life and well-being for patients and families.
While accomplishing all these things, social workers also provide emotional support and understanding as families face the most difficult challenge of saying goodbye.
We are grateful for the role our social workers play in providing superior care and superior services to our hospice families. Learn about other key players in our Quality of Life Team by clicking here.
