What does a Health Care Social Worker Do?
A health care social worker strives to identify and assist with any social and emotional issues impacting your loved one’s health. They are concerned with both physical and mental health care and work to combine these into a treatment plan which brings out the best possible support package.
The role of a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) in a health care setting encompasses many different duties including:
- Organize services such as medical equipment, transportation to doctor’s appointments, and other related activities
- Educate patients and families on entitlements, health care coverage and community resources
- Assist with filling out paperwork
- Help patients in getting admitted to inpatient/outpatient services
- Identify educational classes on things such as Alzheimer’s and cancer management.
- Locate family support resources
- Lead support groups or provide one-to-one counseling
The Patients We Work With Most Often
Health care social workers work with a variety of different patients in a wide range of circumstances. These include patients who are facing issues such as:
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
- Heart failure
- Transitioning from hospital to home
Health care social workers usually work in a larger team which includes doctors, nurses and family members. Along with identifying the patients’ needs, they also monitor patients’ health conditions, document findings and report back to the patients’ healthcare team.
Experienced, Effective Advocacy in Your Time of Need
Every patient has the right to be treated with respect and dignity, make decisions regarding healthcare, to ask questions and have them answered in easy to understand terms amongst other things. Our social workers will work to advocate on behalf of your loved one, providing an experienced and knowledgeable voice to your loved one’s interests.
