Social workers

The Circle Home Hospice social worker supports the hospice plan of care for each patient, and is the patient's and family's advocate. Social workers assist patients and families with accessing community resources to improve comfort and security. For example, social workers can help to obtain financial assistance for non-covered supplies, assist the family with funeral arrangements, and facilitate transfer to a facility if needed. Serious illness often impacts family dynamics, relationships and routines; social workers are available to meet with families and provide information and psychological support.
