Forever Young‘s Medical Social Workers: Compassionate Advocacy
The trauma associated with medical illness or injury can affect every aspect of a patient’s life. Often, patients feel that an illness or injury limits one from participating in the simplest of everyday activities. In this way, these traumas can transcend the physical ailment to affect the emotional and financial aspects of a patient’s life.
Advocating for our patient’s well-being, Forever Young’s medical social workers counsel patients and their families through every step of their support needs, including (but not limited to) the hospital discharge, in-home health care, transportation, meal plans, and therapy.
Of course, counseling is also a significant component of our medical social worker’s support plans. By advocating for our patients, our medical social workers discover the best resources for financial counseling, grief counseling, and emotional support, as well as local community resources.
We also understand that a patient is not the only person who may require support or counseling: families may also need help coping with a loved one’s illness or injury. Through our Social Work Program, we help both patients and their families respond to a diversity of situations.
Finally, our medical social workers strive to meet our patients’ emotional and social needs throughout their treatment. We can help patients with advance directives, long-term in-home health care, and other long-term care issues. Our programs bridge the gap between the incident and the individual, empowering patients to live life to the fullest once again.
