Committed Social Workers
Charter Home Health will shortly begin offering medical social work services.
Medical Social Work is an vital part of our approach to rehabilitative care. Our medical social workers assess the psycho-social functioning of patients and families to improve the well being of patients in the home setting. Interventions may include:
- Connecting patients and families to necessary resources available in the community
- Providing psychotherapy and skilled counseling services
- Helping a patient strengthen their network of social supports.
Our medical social workers use an interdisciplinary approach, working closely with the patients’ other care givers (such as medicine, nursing, physical, occupational, speech and language therapy).
