Social Workers: Students will be able to become involved with social work duties such as intake, working with local community contacts to provide services, advocacy, clinical emotional support, and all the paperwork that is involved in maintaining a patient on hospice.
Psychology and HDFS students: Interns will be albe to become involved with a plethora of disciplines offered at Crossroads. Interns have the oppurtunity to shadow social workers, nurses and bereavement department as well as going out into the field to visit their own patients.
Art Therapists: The interns will be able to provide individual sessions and group experiences for the patients and CRH staff. We have had other Art Therapy interns who have worked here, but each intern is given the opportunity to create a program that is individually chosen by the student and then supplies are purchased if needed.
Music Therapists: The students will be working with patients individually and their facilities and individual homes. The interns will also be helping to develop a music program at Crossroads Hospice. Music is a very important aspect of care for Hospice Patients. Music allows the individual to connect with patients and provide emotional support with verbal and non-verbal patients.
The interns will also have the opportunity to interface with a multi-disciplinary team comprised of a Medical Director, Nurse Practitioner and RN nurse case managers, Social Workers, Chaplains, Bereavement Specialists, Volunteer Manager and volunteers. The supervisor of the students has a MSW and is a Licensed Social Worker.
We have patients in Delaware, Chester, Bucks, Montgomery, and Philadelphia counties.

Our Mission Crossroads is committed to being at the forefront of the hospice care industry, to continually shape the way palliative and hospice care are viewed and administered so that everyone can expect more.
Crossroads cares for patients with life limiting illnesses as well as provides support on many levels to loved ones and caregivers. The staff and volunteers at Crossroads Hospice believe that we live until the day we die, and the quality of our life is important even though we are ill. Crossroads Hospice provides a team approach to care that provides medical, psychological, social, and spiritual care.
What makes us different from other Hospice programs is that we ask ourselves every day the question, "why not?" This question helps us to find new and better ways to deliver hospice care to patients, families, caregivers, and health care professionals alike. It helps us connect with our communities, share our knowledge, be accessible 24/7, innovate, lead, and raise the bar. "Why Not?" has helped us create a hospice experience we believe is second to none....and we are confident you’ll agree.
