PRLog (Press Release) - Feb. 22, 2012 - NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. – Gulfside Regional Hospice is pleased to announce an addition to the staff of seven new social work interns and one spiritual care intern for the spring semester.

For the next semester and through their practicum, the interns will shadow Gulfside staff members as they learn about what it takes to do the work of their selected fields, said Shelley Schneider, Gulfside’s director of psychosocial services and spiritual care. “Interns know that working on site and with patients and staff, their skills can develop quickly making them more viable candidates for future employment.”  

Over the years, Gulfside Regional Hospice has employed several social work interns after they graduate. Interns are allowed extra time to spend with the patients and their family members as they cope with life limiting illness.

“We believe in giving back to the profession. It’s also an opportunity for the student to get practical, hands-on experience and knowledge,” said Schneider.

The new social work interns are Kelly Beadle, Cheryl Maximo, Mandy Ronuckeo, Pearl Lamourt, Allana Fernandez, Jennie Pearson Yingling and Lee-Ann Losee, and Tedd Weiser, a spiritual care intern. Seven attend Saint Leo University, while Losee attends the University of North Dakota. Each chose to work with Gulfside Regional Hospice for a variety of reasons, chief among them is their desire to help others and lessen personal and physical pain for the hospice patient and their families.

Gulfside Regional Hospice, established as a nonprofit corporation in Pasco County in 1988 and initially licensed in 1989, serves more than 300 patients daily. GRH employs over 250 professionals and has more than 550 volunteers, and is the only hospice that serves Pasco County exclusively. Gulfside Regional Hospice was selected the 2011 Non-profit of the Year by the Tampa Bay Business Journal.
