Posted on March 11, 2014Each March during National Social Work Month, Crossroads Hospice is proud to present the Caring More Award. Launched in 2010, this program recognizes the outstanding efforts of these unsung heroes, who dedicate their careers to improving the lives of others. The winners are awarded $500 to a non-profit of their choice – as well as a breakfast banquet held in their honor. Colleagues, family, friends, and a panel of judges are all invited to celebrate the amazing efforts of the winners.
To select a winner at each of our 11 sites, we establish a panel of expert judges who have distinguished themselves as pioneers in their fields. They include representatives from disease and professional social work associations, chairs of social work departments from area universities, elder care attorneys, nursing home administrators, geriatric physicians and more. These individuals know what makes a great social worker – because they too do more for the people they serve every day.
