Advocating for Residents and Families

Our Social Workers assist residents and families by acting as advocates to foster a climate and routine that enables residents to maximize their individuality, independence, and dignity. Our facility promotes residents achieving the highest practical level of physical, mental, and psychosocial well-being and quality of life.  Social Workers are available to direct people to the resources they may require.

Social Workers obtain residents’ social history as well as educate them on resident rights. We ensure smooth transitions between levels of care.

Our Social Workers collaborate with outside agencies such as doctor’s offices, home health agencies, community resources, and local DSS agencies.  We are happy to assist you with applications for financial assistance.

Additional responsibilities include:

  • Setting up services to return to the community
  • Scheduling follow up visits with primary care physicians, facilitating home health recommendations, Meals on Wheels, and CAPS
  • Coordinate on-site services including podiatry, ophthalmology, and dental
  • Schedule Care Plan meetings
  • Provide family education
  • Facilitating monthly Resident Council meetings
