Staff specialists in geriatric social work provide a comprehensive in-home evaluation and prepare an individualized plan or care. Social workers can also assist with negotiating the maze of bureaucacy to obtain entitlements and other benefits from programs within the senior services network. This coordination of options, resources and supports, can enable the frail senior to function safely at home for as long as possible. An overwhelming majority of our clients are able to stay in their own homes in a stable condition. We feel strongly about the rights of older persons and about the need to offer practical help as well as the more conventional counseling, medication review, and psychiatric evaaluation.
