Social Work Services
“Quality of life” involves much more than a person’s physical condition. Our staff of six full-time social workers have a combined 50+ years of experience helping residents and families with social and psychological issues they may have, including those related to admission, diagnosis, treatment and discharge planning. All residents are discharged from PNH with a follow-up medical appointment , and they are assisted in obtaining an adequate supply of medications. The staff also provides support in the areas of advance directives, end-of-life decisions, counseling, vocational evaluation and rehabilitation. Other psychosocial services include a full-time psychotherapist and a consulting psychiatrist.
