The Medical Social Worker staff assists patients with the adjustments that often follow an illness. Services are performed within the home and under a physician’s orders.
Our medical social worker services include:
- Communicating with home health professional staff regarding a patient’s psychosocial assessment and collaborating with necessary sources to meet the patient’s needs.
- Helping patients achieve independence.
- Diagnosing the severity of a patient’s social problems.
- Assisting patients and their families/caregivers to manage personal and environmental challenges, which may prevent the patient from benefiting from home care.
