Medical Social Worker

When confronted with tough situations in your health or the health of someone you love, you need to know your options. The best decisions are those that are made with appropriate information and with sound advice. We know how difficult it can be to receive news about your health especially when it involves a life limiting illness, disability or the need for expensive treatment.

During such times, we have medical social workers who can come to your aid. They offer professional assistance in hospital discharge planning, home care planning, counseling and psychosocial analysis.

Medical Social Workers can also help you tap into government funding or community resources to finance treatment expenses. If you have insurance coverage, your medical social worker can help you in processing claims.

Other areas that Medical Social Work can cover include rehabilitation assistance, substance abuse treatment and relapse prevention, bereavement/grief counseling, and parent coaching.
