Medical Social Workers

Our trusted medical social workers bridge the gap between you, your family and community resources to improve your recovery. Social workers work closely with patients and families to provide the social, economic and emotional solutions that will help lead to greater health and independence. From referrals to counseling to financial assistance, our medical social workers provide answers, including:

  • Assessments of your social, economic and emotional needs relating to your overall medical plan.
  • Education about and connection to appropriate resources and support in our community.
  • Assistance with your transfer to a more appropriate home setting if needed (for example, to an apartment, retirement community, residential care facility or nursing home).
  • Assistance with planning and decision-making assistance in various situations related to your illness, injury or overall medical plan.
  • Patient and family counseling, including adjustment and management of your condition.

Christiana Care VNA partners with patients and their families to provide skilled, coordinated, compassionate in-home care. Our tradition of caring for people across their lifespan is supported by the state’s largest health care system – Christiana Care. As Delaware’s home health care agency of choice, we are proud to serve our community by helping people get well, be healthy and live independently at home.
