March is Social Work Month

Each day, nearly 700,000 social workers nationwide work to elevate and empower others, giving them the ability to solve life’s problems, cope with personal roadblocks and get the services they need.

Every year, the National Association of Social Workers celebrates the contributions of social workers in the month of March. Hospice of Central New York & of the Finger Lakes would like to express our appreciation for the invaluable contributions our social workers and counselors make every day with patients and their families.

What do Hospice social workers do? Hospice social workers can provide information regarding community resources and offer assistance related to advanced directives, financial and legal needs. Social workers can provide advocacy, facility communication and assist with crisis management.

Social workers honor diversity and the unique experiences and needs of each individual patient and their family.

Thank you for the difference you make as a member of our interdisciplinary team!
