* Social Work Services
Social Workers are available at the Center on Wednesday mornings from 10:00am to 12:00pm or Monday through Friday by appointment. Their goal is to enhance quality of life and independence. They can answer questions on health insurance, prescription drug coverage, housing alternatives, medical care, home services, and much more.
When there is a concern regarding a person's ability to remain safely at home, the Social Work staff can offer a comprehensive home assessment. A home assessment looks at all aspects of functioning in the home including:
* Self-care abilities *Mobility skills
* Ability to prepare meals * Socialization
* Ability to manage medications * Safe environment
* Ability to manage finances * Memory
If the assessment indicates that support services are needed the Social Worker will work with the client and family/caregiver to find resources to meet their needs.
