Social Workers consult with both the patient and their family regarding financial needs, emotional support, adjustment to illness, and provide the link between patients, their families and community resources.
Planning your health care needs can be a challenging task without proper help and direction. Highland Care Center has three full-time social workers on staff to help you make those important decisions that affect not only your stay in a skilled nursing facility, but also decisions that affect your future and your health following your stay. We can assist you in obtaining information for home health services and community resources in your area. Our social workers will help you understand your rights as a patient and will help you navigate your experience here at Highland.
