Social Work

The Social Work Department manages the Home's waiting list and maintains contact with applicants and their families. The Social Worker coordinates admissions to the Home and supports the new resident and family through the transition process, helping them to adjust to their new environment. The Social Workers are available for ongoing support to residents and their families.

The Social Workers complete cognitive and psychosocial assessments as well as social histories which are integral parts to the full assessment of each resident.

Social Work facilitates the Resident/Family Council meetings and coordinates the Respite Care Program.
