Answer – Family support available.

The Social Services department is the bridge between the facility, the family, and the resident. We are first and foremost, advocates for the residents in our facility, promoting their individuality and safeguarding their rights during their stay.

 

Placing a loved one in a facility is many times difficult for both the resident and the family. Social Services staff is available for support and reassurance during this stressful time. Staff are available to hear any concerns, answer any questions, or provide any assistance necessary. Social Services staff also assists in discharge planning when the resident is ready to leave the facility. We provide referrals to appropriate agencies and community services, order necessary equipment, and coordinate all related activities to ensure a safe and pleasant discharge.
