Covenant Hospice is celebrating National Social Work Month, with the theme “All People Matter,” to raise awareness about the American social work profession’s 116 years of service.
Throughout its 34-county service area, Covenant Hospice social workers help patients and families live with dignity and the highest degree of physical, emotional, social and spiritual comfort, a spokesperson said.
They provide emotional support to patients and their loved ones, assist in dealing with closure concerns, help in understanding and completing advanced directives, and help in understanding and using Medicare, Medicaid or other insurance benefits. Covenant Hospice social workers also help patients and families who need financial assistance by identifying and accessing community resources.
