Social Workers Step in When Families Need it the Most

18 years ago, Roxanne completed her Master’s internship at Delaware Hospice and hasn’t left. An experienced social worker, Roxanne provides support to everyone involved in a patient’s care plan.

Delaware Hospice social workers are part of an interdisciplinary team where their role is to not only support their patient but also the family and assist the care team. Living our Mission, social workers meet the needs of our patients by providing the resources necessary for a care plan to be successful.

If you or someone you know is dealing with a loss, whether that is spousal, parental, siblings, or children, reach out to Delaware Hospice for the support and understanding you need to get through this time.

“To lose a spouse has been the most difficult thing in my life. While she was still here with us, I thought I could handle it, but when she passed away the profound loss was something I was not prepared for.”

— Johnny, husband of patient Peggy
