Appreciating Health Care Providers

Appreciating Health Care Providers
Social workers interact with family caregivers of older adults not only throughout the network of aging services and across the health, mental/behavioral health, and long-term care continuum, but also in diverse settings such as child welfare agencies, employee assistance programs, faith-based organizations, housing programs, schools, and veterans service programs.

March is National Social Work Month, and we want to appreciate the social workers whom our network of locations partner with frequently. In particular, let’s honor them for their ability to:
  • Determine an outcome that is most safe and also most logical for our elders.
  • Take into consideration everything that is going on with a client- housing issues, finances, health, relationships, short and long term goals- and work out a smart plan that benefits the care team.
  • Be resourceful and practical problem solvers and counselors.
  • Help manage complex family dynamics.

Thank you, social workers, for your hard work and determination!
