As members of the Harbors Home Health & Hospice care team, our social workers offer their unique skills helping patients and families cope with illness and the challenges of caregiving at home.

Our Medical Social Workers work with patients and families to keep patients at home in a safe and healthy environment.

Medical Social Workers assist patients and their families when social, emotional, or economic factors interfere with the patient's medical condition, treatment plan or rate of recovery.  Areas in which our social worker may assist the patient or their family may include learning to cope with the effects of the patient's illness, referral to additional community resources, planning for long-term care, assisting patients with advance directives or advocating for the patient who needs financial assistance.
