A Social Worker Helps to Create a Senior Care Plan
To make sure that a senior citizen receives appropriate care after surgery or for a long-term condition, we must understand what services are required from our team of professionals who include trained caregivers, certified nursing assistants, therapists and registered nurses. Some senior citizens require minimal care for a few days as they recover from a minor surgical procedure while others need daily assistance with basic needs such as eating, bathing and traveling to medical appointments.
Social Workers Want Senior Citizens to Remain Independent
Our social workers will inspect a senior citizen’s home to create a plan that is suitable for the individual. If a senior citizen’s physical or mental health changes, then a social worker will repeat the evaluation process. It is important for a senior citizen to have as much independence as possible while living in his own home while receiving assistance from our team.
