celebrates Social Work Month
The month of March is Social Work Month! Since its inception, the
social work profession has worked to improve life for millions every
day. Social workers operate from values that recognize each person as
relevant to society and believe that, when needed, society should help
each person achieve his or her fullest potential.
People choose careers in the social work profession because they
believe they can make a significant impact in the lives of others
through individual and group assistance. But they also recognize
that effective social work practice with individuals, families and
communities is affected by institutions, customs and laws that may
limit the success of many.
Jackie McEldowney, Licensed Social Worker at Versailles Health Care
Center, became a social worker because she had such a desire to help
people. McEldowney has been a member of VHCC’s team since
1993. She takes care of patients and residents’ psychosocial
needs during their stay and does the required assessments and care
plans for them as well. She is also the patient/resident
Kristy Earick, CEO/Administrator of Versailles Health Care Center,
commented “Jackie is a dedicated and caring employee. She helps
support our families, patients, and residents. Jackie recognizes
that families, patients and residents can feel overwhelmed by all the
decisions that are needed and helps them with their concerns.
Thanks Jackie for being a support to those in need!”
