postheadericon Social Worker

Hospice recognizes that psychosocial and emotional needs are as important as physical needs. The social worker understands these needs as well as the personal problems created or aggravated by illness and provides direction to all family members in coping with the situation.

Counseling and guidance are given to those having social, emotional or financial problems related to the patient’s health problems. The social worker provides the link with local resources to help with specific problems and can work with the family to secure financial and community resources.
