March is National Social Work Month. We’re paying tribute to our nation’s 600,000 social workers by taking you through an “average” day with a nursing home social worker.
Kim Allred is Social Service Designee for Hanceville Nursing & Rehab Center, and is 2017 President of ANHA’s Activity & Social Service Auxiliary. In this article, she takes you on a minute-by-minute journey of one of her work days.
