Medical Social Workers

Medical Social Workers

While doctors, nurses, specialists and more are all crucial to supporting the physical needs of a patient, the medical social worker assists behind the scenes with patients and families to ensure they have the resources they need to heal, as well as addressing their emotional and psychosocial needs. Medical social workers’ duties can be very different, depending on the unique needs of their clients, but they may be involved in meal planning, grief counseling, providing referrals for support groups and a variety of other services that support patients throughout their recovery.

At Paramount Home Health Services, we strive to better the lives of our patients. A patient’s quality of life is our top priority, and we endeavor to help them in as many ways as we can. If our skilled staff observes an unsafe situation or a patient in need of additional assistance, it is our responsibility to make sure that patient receives the support they require to better their situation.
