Dementia is hard in so many ways on so many people. It’s frustrating, scary and emotionally draining for the people who have it, for their families and for their caregivers.
As hard as it is for everyone involved when dementia patients can’t express themselves or remember a loved one’s name, the most frustrating thing about the disease—and the scariest—is that these mental slips are only part of a disease that sadly can’t be cured.
In March, it was our privilege to recognize 11 extraordinary social workers from our community as our Caring More Award winners. Learn about them by clicking here.During National Social Work Month, the Caring More Award is presented to outstanding social workers who go above and beyond to improve lives through their work with patients and in the community. The award includes a $500 prize to the non-profit of the winner’s choice. We are always eager to learn about why each organization was selected. This year, we’ve launched an extra special part of the Caring More Awards—and we need YOUR help to make it a success.
