March is Social Work Month. At Good Shepherd Hospice, we are proud to honor those in this profession that means so much to so many every single day. Social workers provide vitally important services, keeping our children safe, working with homeless populations, providing mental healthcare, and working with vulnerable populations to protect their interests when they cannot. Social workers provide counseling and access to resources for those who have experienced the trauma of natural disasters. Social workers help to coordinate patient care in hospitals and healthcare facilities. Social workers provide bereavement support and guidance to those coping with the death of a loved one. Social workers touch the lives of people in our communities in so many different ways.
At Good Shepherd Hospice, we say, “Thank you,” to those dedicated professionals for all that they do to help so many. We know firsthand of the importance of social workers, because they are such an important part of our interdisciplinary care teams, enabling us to provide exceptional care to our patients every day.
