Celebrate Social Work Month and Day by Honouring Lung Transplant Heroes!
.
March is National Social Work Month, and this year’s theme is Empowering Social Workers! Today is also World Social Worker Day, which provides an opportunity for social workers and others in the social service sector to celebrate their accomplishments while raising awareness and support for the critical role that social workers play in the lives of disadvantaged children, families, and communities.
.
So, today, I’d want to use this opportunity to recognise some unsung heroes: lung transplant social workers.
.
Every lung transplant centre includes a social worker who assists patients throughout their journey. These outstanding people handle massive caseloads ranging from housing and financial aid to transportation and care coordination. They are there to answer questions, solve issues, and provide emotional support during life’s most difficult times.
.
Do you recall a social worker who went above and beyond to help you? I’d love to hear your experiences!
.
Mine was the excellent Josephine Taylor of TPCH, who retired late last year. She was an inspiration and a pleasure to meet with between clinic visits.
.
We now have the stunning Sarah McCrystal, who is brilliant and easy to work with.
.
In the comments section below, leave a thank you note for your transplant centreā€™s social worker or tell me how your social worker assisted you throughout your transplant experience.
.
Let us all appreciate the great social workers who make lung transplants possible!šŸŒæ
