We understand your concerns and the emotional and social impacts that illness has on our patients and their families. Our team partners with you to develop options and plans that meet your or your loved ones’ health, developmental and emotional needs.
We provide essential emotional support and help patients transition to home following hospitalization and during outpatient treatment. Whether dealing with any health condition, treatment that is not going well or perhaps feelings of isolation or despair, our social workers can help patients work through issues or help obtain the appropriate resource or service.
Why Use US?
- We provide a dynamic assessment of a patient’s health status, personal reactions to illness or injury, and the patient’s and family’s capacity to manage these events
- We gather information to develop a plan for helping the patient and family reach the maximum benefit from health care resources.
- We help mediate the disruption that illness and treatment bring and help the patient and family mobilize their personal and interpersonal resources.
As patients and families cope with the impact of injury or illness, they can be adversely affected by costs for medical care, pharmaceuticals, necessary living expenses, and other financial or material concerns. Needs such as lodging and meals for family members, transportation to and from the hospital or payment for special equipment or services after discharge can produce anxiety. Only when patients and families are provided with adequate material and financial support to meet their basic needs, can they benefit fully from health care services.
We are committed to the welfare of those who may have been abused or neglected. We provide protective services to suspected victims of child abuse, dependent adult abuse, spouse abuse, and other forms of family violence. Family violence includes physical abuse, sexual abuse, denial of critical care (neglect), emotional/psychological abuse, and financial exploitation.
