Social Workers and Hospice Care

Occupational Therapy in Pearland Texas
Social workers might become involved if you or a loved one move to hospice care. Hospice care is defined as having received a terminal diagnosis within the time frame of six months or less. 
Once you reach that stage in your life, the goals of your home health care change. CASA Healthcare’s branch, CASA Hospice, is still committed to keeping you comfortable in your own home with the help of CASA Hospice workers, if that is your preference, and a social worker can help our team do just that.

A social worker can help make sure that all proper state procedures are kept while we focus on helping you or your loved one stay as comfortable as possible. Social workers are also skilled in the more empathetic aspects of this work. They are not only concerned with paperwork and regulations. They are also trained to listen to clients and ensure that needs and wishes are being met with compassion. This shared mission is why CASA Healthcare teams up with social workers when needed.
 
Whether you’re looking for increased access to government health programs or are needing appropriate hospice care, CASA Healthcare and CASA Hospice work with social workers to your benefit.

We built CASA Healthcare in Pearland, Texas, because our communities matter to us.
