Avenir Hospice Care, LLC dedicates its efforts to ensure that all of our patients are well-taken care of and comfortable in their last days with us. However, more delicate matters require a little more attention and care. Finances and property distribution can be challenging to detail out in your final six months. That’s why we provide a social worker for such a situation.
Social Worker Roles
Our hospice social workers serve multiple purposes designed to aid you to tidy up unfinished affairs. Hospice social workers focus on providing support with a variety of tasks. They can help patients complete advances directives, offer information and understanding regarding caregiving and services, and connect the patient and their family to community resources.
In addition to form-filling and connecting you to helpful resources, our hospice social workers don’t stop there. They also assist families with funeral arrangements and the emotional needs of our patients. Regardless of how far you are into your illness, it’s never too late to ensure that all of your possessions and property are correctly managed and dealt with after your death. No matter what service you need from our social workers, their purpose is to make your end-of-life journey as stress-free as possible.
Our Social Workers are Here for You
Most adults have a cynical reaction to hearing about social workers. The implication of them is that someone has done something wrong. Hospice social workers are purely here to assist our patients with all of their financial, emotional, spiritual, and practical needs. Once you meet your social worker, you’ll see that they are simply here to help.
Hospice social services also include wills and bereavement. Our social workers focus on providing the best care for each patient. However, not every social worker clicks with every patient. To determine the best match, we conduct a minor psychosocial evaluation of our patient. Our assessment allows us to find the right social worker for you, one that you get along with in your final days. So call us today at (832) 766-0929 to learn more about our social services. Even though we’re closed on Saturdays and Sundays, our phone service is available 24/7. Don’t let your last days be a confusing mess, let one of our social workers make it easier for you today.
