FD Talks: Episode 17 – A Social Worker’s Perspective | Hospice Care and Funeral Service Series | Part 1
While funeral homes and hospice facilities each play a key — but very separate — role in a loved one’s end-of-life journey, the two value serving families at the highest level. One important factor in achieving that goal is the relationship between hospice social workers and funeral directors. When the two utilize and establish a strong relationship, it often leads to better care for families during some of the worst days of their lives.
In part one of this two-part series, host Rob Davidson sits down with Peggy Shepherd, a licensed clinical social worker at Hendrick Hospice Care. They discuss how families benefit the most when Hospice and funeral homes provide care, support, and answers by working together to put families first.
