Social work services

Northwell Home Care Network provides comprehensive social work services for homebound patients. Social workers can assess your emotional, environmental and social needs. The social worker may help with long term planning, suggest strategies to help you through this difficult time and make referrals to community resources. 

Our social workers help patients and their families with:

  • Advance directives (Power of Attorney for Health Care or Living Will)
  • Assistance in emotional adjustments to life changes
  • Assistance with applications for financial aid
  • Community resource planning and coordination
  • Counseling with life-style changes
  • Crisis intervention
  • Grief counseling/coping with impending loss
  • Teaching to cope with loss and change
