Social Services

Because families of children with complex medical conditions often struggle with social, economic and emotional difficulties, our social workers help parents and other relatives meet the challenges facing them. Referrals are made to resources in the community to enable families to meet their children’s special needs. As needed, social workers advocate for families with Medicaid, insurance providers or Social Security. Our Social Services Department also prepares families for home care, long-term resident treatment or end-of-life concerns, as appropriate.
