Social Work for Home Health Care
When we are providing home care, our social workers counsel individuals and families experiencing stress from an illness or disability. Deeply familiar with counseling, family dynamics, healthcare, and the healthcare system, our social workers listen and offer constructive support and resources in the community. We provide family support and can help with access to financial assistance programs.
Help with coping. When life throws you a curve, we’re here to help. As master’s prepared professionals, our social workers specialize in family dynamics, counseling, gerontology and adjustment to illness issues. We help families and individuals develop effective coping strategies and learn how to manage stress. Together, we create a support system of community services to foster independence.
Coordinating care. Social workers can also assist with transfers to alternate levels of care when necessary. We work closely with nurses and therapists to ensure quality, coordinated care for you and your family members. If you aren’t sure how to approach your medical or non-medical care questions, we listen and guide you in the right direction. If you have concerns, you know that you can call us.
Part of the network. Social work services are part of the guidance, support, life-at-home assistance and home health services that VNA Community Healthcare offers the Shoreline Community. We can help you identify other programs and services in the community, including groups where you can meet other people in similar situations.
Social Work Makes Sense for:
- families or individuals facing stress from an illness or a disability
- those who need help with stress management and coping skills
- family support and counseling
