National Social Work Month
At Silverado, we are fully committed to providing life-enriching care to those we serve and one of our Silverado Standards is to have a Master's prepared social worker as part of the community leadership team. In honor of National Social Work Month, we're highlighting Silverado Naperville's Social Worker, Jill Polanski!
Jill Polanski is the Director of Resident and Family Services, MSW at Silverado Naperville. She has been a member of the leadership team since the opening the community in January 2014. Social workers by definition are those that help others. She has helped 242 residents and their family members experience life while living with a diagnosis of dementia. Her role in the community is to educate family members, associates and residents on the aspects of dementia and to help them to experience life to the fullest. She looks forward to continue to enrich our residents lives and to change the way the world views those with dementia.
Each month, Jill hosts a support group for residents and a separate support group for family members. To get to know Jill feel free to email her at firstname.lastname@example.org or catch her by phone at 630-778-9221.
