Wilson, Babin recognized for Social Work
Care Dimensions joins with the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) to celebrate National Social Work Month this month by recognizing the efforts of two of its social workers, Brooke Wilson, LCSW, and Danielle Babin, LICSW, both of Gloucester.
“Working within an interdisciplinary team, our social workers provide assistance to patients and families as they grapple with the emotional and practical issues that invariably arise during their end-of-life journey,” said Sandra Yudilevich Espinoza, director of psycho-social support services at Care Dimensions, in a statement.
All of the social workers at Care Dimensions have earned a master’s degree in social work and have achieved one or two levels of licensure — licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) or licensed independent clinical cocial worker (LICSW). And more than half of these social workers have earned an advanced certification in hospice and palliative care through the NASW. The major goals of these hospice and palliative care social workers include encouraging expression of feelings, enhancing family communication, supporting the family in its coping, connecting families with community resources and education, and being a supportive presence to the patient and family throughout the journey at end of life.
