Our Medical Social Workers (MSW) visit patient’s in the privacy of their homes to help with the social and emotional concerns that may accompany health care issues. Their goal is to guide and support you and your caregivers after an illness, a decline in health or hospitalization. At St. Elizabeth Home Health we realize that during this demanding time you may need the extra support that they can provide.
Our social workers are able to assist you with;
- Advanced Care Planning in line with your wishes, such as communicating your decisions on legal document choices such as a power of attorney for health care, advance directives or living will. These documents reflect your healthcare wishes when you are not able to make these decisions any longer.
- Our social workers also are available to help with referrals to:
- Private care givers
- Adult day care programs
- Long-term care placement
- Community resources
- Support Groups
Additionally they provide assistance with:
- Medicaid applications
- Coping Strategies and emotional support
