Social Worker Brenda “Bree” Joseph, MSW, spent time as a counselor yet decided hospice was another way to help people. “Instead of focusing on saving a life, I ensure those who are dying do so with comfort, grace, and dignity,” she said.

Joseph recalls special moments with patients, such as the veteran with limited short-term memory who finally remembered her name. “I gave him a hug,” she said.

In the midst of highlights and challenges, Joseph stays focused on delivering patient care from the heart. “If I am on your team, you have a dedicated supporter throughout your journey,” she said.
