Ashland resident and social worker Monica Alley was recently recognized by Care Dimensions and the National Association of Social Workers in honor of National Social Work Month.

“Our social workers play an integral role within our interdisciplinary team and strive to provide the best care to patients and families, no matter what their needs may be,” said Judy Cranney, vice president and chief operating officer of Care Dimensions.

All of the social workers at Care Dimensions have earned a master’s degree in social work and have achieved licensed clinical social worker or licensed independent clinical social worker licensure. Over half of these social workers have earned an advanced certification in hospice and palliative care through the NASW.

Alley is a licensed independent clinical social worker.
