Social work forms a very important part of our multi-disciplinary service at Memorycare. Our social worker provides support to patients and their families by assisting with placements, home assessments, family counselling and general case management. The services of our social worker are often utilised when any of the following challenges impact on a patient care:
- Safeguarding concerns
- Health and safety risks
- Family disputes
- Emotional stress/burnout of caregivers
- Lack of adequate support
- Lack of financial and/or physical resources.
