Hospice Social Workers: Making Connections and Making a Difference
Be a Difference Maker, Earn a Payout.
Social workers are Difference Makers: They're at the heart of everything we do, providing excellent care at the bedside each and every day with Commitment, Compassion, and a Can-Do Attitude.
That’s why, after 12 months of active service, social workers working 20 or more hours a week can receive a lump-sum payout in recognition of their support and dedication to our patients and their fellow team members.
Talk to your recruiter today to learn more and see if you qualify.
Compassion and a can-do attitude truly define hospice social workers. Whether it's helping patients and families navigate medical paperwork and sensitive healthcare decisions, providing community resources, or offering emotional support, hospice social workers find their purpose as they make a real difference in the lives of others.
