The medical social work we provide assists patients and their caretakers in planning for in-home treatment and looking at the long-term goals. This type of service could include:
It is common that we find patients do not understand all the assistance that is available to them in their time of need. Our job is to educate people and caretakers on that numerous resources available within the community. For example, many of our veterans are unaware of specialized services that are available to them. In many cases, patients do not know what help and equipment are available to them through insurance and outside assistance. Furthermore, there comes a time when conversations need to be had about the next steps for loved ones, and that is where we help physicians and families talk through the process.
