VHCC 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 advocate. 

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!”

Versailles Health Care Center is a skilled nursing and rehabilitation center that offers short-term rehab services, outpatient therapy, and long-term care.  If you are interested in learning more about Versailles Health Care Center, please call us at 937.526.5570, or visit on the web at
