Crossroads Hospice & Palliative Care Hospice Social Worker - Float in Akron, Ohio

The Hospice & Palliative Medical Social Worker assists patients and families by providing resources for care to enhance the patient's quality of life during adjustment, planning, and after end of life care.

Life is better with compassion!

Patients and families near the end of life should have a caregiver committed to the art, science, and skill of delivering compassion.

Death is a meaningful experience for patients and loved ones. We only have one chance to get it right.

Delivering compassion the right way is not easy; it takes skill, heart, commitment, and structure to do it well.

We believe the effort is worth the challenge because nobody should die alone.

Organizations can do more and this industry can be better. Crossroads exists because compassion should not be a transaction.

Everyone needs a business model. Compassionate teamwork is the engine that runs our organization. We believe challenges should not alter the heart of our organization, but instead, make us stronger as a team. We aren't compromising our promise. We believe in empowering our team to deliver compassion and build stronger connections in our community.

Look, we aren't blind to the challenges in this business. The work we do is fulfilling to us. To grow, listen, be heard, and be challenged as a team is standing up for the heart of our organization.
