Why Social Services?

Social and emotional well-being are the cornerstones of our medical social work. HealthNow’s medical social workers are professionals that understand how difficult it is for some patients to attend doctors appointments or coordinate medications. HealthNow’s medical social workers have the resources needed to ensure patient safety. Our social workers provide the necessary assistance, whether it is medical, social, or psychological. HealthNow can also provide education and resource links for family caretakers. Our professionals are skilled in assisting patients and their families to cope with personal, emotional, and social challenges.

Challenging Situations Require a Positive Attitude

A patient’s socio-emotional factors play a big role in their response to medical care. A patient with a healthy attitude will recover more quickly than one who is struggling with emotional needs. HealthNow social workers provide empathy and compassion during challenging times as well as a treatment plan to get families and patients back to a positive mental state. Our medical social workers can work with your medical team and family members to make sure patients are receiving the proper course of care. This collaborative effort often results in better clinical progress and shorter recovery times.
