About

As a Social Work Intern, you will learn how a social worker operates in an hospice environment, what services are required and hospice regulations. This quickly growing field is becoming ever more important in our aging population, and learning how it works will be invaluable to you in your future career.


Brookdale Hospice is a premier hospice provider headquartered in Nashville as part of the largest senior care provider in the United States. Brookdale Hospice provides hospice care that goes above and beyond the basics to address the needs of residents and families in our communites and beyond when faced with terminal illness.


At Brookdale Hospice, we treat the patient, not the disease. The focus is on care, not cure. Our patient's and their family's medical, social, emotional and spiritual needs are addressed by an interdisciplinary team of hospice professionals and volunteers. Brookdale Hospice considers the entire family, not just the patient, as the "unit of care". Families are encouraged to participate in the caretaking process. Terminal illness affects the entire family structure. Adjustment, mental process, self awareness, acceptance and grief are major parts of the dying process. Our licensed Social Workers and Chaplains are available to work with the entire family. Bereavement counseling is provided to families for up to one year after their loved one passes.
