Thank you to those who were able to attend the CSWA-S August Luncheon. Dr. Kelly Erola spoke about her work in Palliative Care and Hospice and the importance of effective Social Workers in this setting. She spoke very highly of our profession and knows we need passionate and capable people in this role.

She discussed how to overcome the difficulties regarding the negative connotation of “Hospice” as well as the importance of getting involved in Palliative Care early in a diagnosis and recommending a transition to Hospice at the appropriate time. She mentioned some policy changes that will be in effect beginning January 1, 2016 that will seek to bring more effective and appropriate care to individuals involved in Hospice home care.

The Demere Center for Living will host a grand opening on September 29, 2015 @11:00am. This new facility, located at 6000 Business Center Drive, will allow more individuals and their families to receive resources to assist them as they adjust to life changing events. Families do not need to be involved with Hospice to benefit from these services. Please visit the website for more information. Perhaps some of your clients struggling with caregiver burden, grief, or adjustment can benefit from these services!

Thank you to all who have registered for our August Luncheon on 8/26. Time is running out so if you plan to attend, please head over to the event registration page and sign up!

I am pleased to announce that we have a new office space.  For those of you who read the annual report, you know that we were looking for office space at a lower price.  We were very fortunate that one of our members was kind enough to let us know of an opportunity to rent an office in the Senior Citizen's Inc building.  Due to this fortuitous change, we are able to save $115.00 a month on office space.  We also have access to conference rooms for those of you who want to participate in group/peer supervision, assist in providing group LCSW supervision, or lead/participate in LCSW/LMSW study groups.  For more information please email This email address is being protected from spambots.

The new address for the office is 3025 Bull Street, Savannah, GA 31405.  Please continue to send mail to PO BOX 13930 Savannah, GA 31416.

Thank you for your ongoing support!
