Medical Social Work

Our medical social workers play a very important role in the patient’s home care program by assisting the patient and family to make a healthy emotional and social adjustment to illness or disability through counseling, education, resource development, and support. They also address financial issues the patient may be experiencing. Our social workers are caring, compassionate professionals whose services include:

  • Evaluation of social, economic, environmental, and emotional factors that affect the patient’ s condition
  • Obtaining needed community resources such as Meals-On-Wheels, chore services, transportation, financial assistance, and support groups
  • Patient and family counseling and education
  • Assistance with long-term planning and alternative living arrangements
  • Stress management/coping skills training
  • Crisis intervention
  • Helping eligible patients obtain prescription assistance.
