Dealing with and preparing for the passing of a loved one is a challenging thing to do. Knowing that they are leaving this lifetime hurts, especially if you have spent the most time with them. Preparing for their passing also entails a lot of responsibility to ensure that they get to rest in peace.
As such, to help you make the journey easier, AMERICUS HOSPICE, INC. offers Social Worker services for your hospice needs. We’ll make sure to provide you and your loved ones with psychosocial support throughout their care.
Without a social worker, the hospice team would be lacking. To link people with resources, social work requires passion, advocacy, extraordinary problem-solving skills, attentive listening, and excellent communication abilities. Nearing the end of life, patients and families may face a variety of social, emotional, and practical issues that hospice social workers can assist with.
As part of our hospice care in Simi Valley, California, our Social Workers will provide you and your family with support in matters concerning your overall care while focusing on improving your social function and overall well-being. They can help you with navigating community resources, and they also play a crucial role in managing the different aspects of your care. Our professionals can help with:
- Financial counseling
- Education for the patient’s family, caregivers, and friends
- Psychological and grief counseling
- And more
In this time of grieving and emotional turmoil, allow us to provide you with the comfort of a friend. Should you need our services, such as our respite care in California, feel free to get in touch with us anytime.
