challenging workplace in need of more support
Social Worker, Franklin Square, NY - July 12, 2015
Garden Care Center provided me with a good experience to understand a social workers responsibilities in a nursing home. I was able to learn all of the necessary paperwork, attend regular team meetings and provide important services to patients and their families. There didn't appear to be a great support for the social work team by the other co-workers. The most enjoyable part of my job was to introduce support meetings with the residents in order to create a long term, and trusting relationship. The hardest part of the job was the lack of support and understanding that social work is an integral part of a treatment team.
