Social Work Month: Whitley Griffith

March 25, 2024

Boyd Nursing and Rehabilitation is excited to highlight our outstanding Social Work team! Introducing Whitley Griffith!

Name: Whitley Griffith 

Years of Experience: I started here in December 2019  

What has ‘empowered’ you to become a social worker?: I enjoy being able to make a difference in the lives of others. Not only can it be a demanding job, it’s also a challenging and meaningful one.  Helping others has always been something that has been important to me. 

As we celebrate Social Work Month, what message or advice would you like to share with the community about the importance of social work in long-term care?: A social worker in a long-term care facility works with residents and their families to identify the residents’ psychosocial, mental, and emotional needs. The social worker then aids in providing or obtaining the services to meet those needs.  The social worker is a voice for the resident and helps them with any questions or concerns they may have.
