Placement may be temporary or indefinite, but either way a sense of loss and adjustment is faced by the resent and their family. The Social Workers within the Facility are prepared to assist with this adjustment, as well as monitor and assist throughout the residents stay here for psychological and psychosocial needs.
The facility has two trained professional licensed social workers that specialize in gerontology. They wear many that’s within the facility and always strive along with other staff, to assure residents rights and quality of life.
Our Social Service Department works closely with Mental Health Services, Home, Health, Hospice, Optical, Dental and other various community resources to guarantee the highest quality of life for the residents whether they make the facility their permanent home roe turns to independent living.
Acting as a liaison between the family, the resident and the facility, the social worker will often help with resident advance directive, issues, concerns, or educating the family in regard to medical issues. Whatever the task may be, the social worker is there to assist.
