Medical Social Work

Social work services are a vital component of our home health care program. Our goal is to improve or maintain the social, emotional, functional, and physical health status of each client while enhancing the coping skills of the family and other caregivers. Social Workers may be able to help in the following areas: advocacy with community agencies, information about, and referral to, programs such as Meals on Wheels or non-skilled Aide services, counseling and crisis intervention, application for financial assistance with long-term care planning, and placement counseling.
