Hope Social Workers
Medical social workers are accountable for providing the support and resources patients need to recover from a medical condition or injury as well as the mental, physical or psychological issues that result. After carrying out a thorough evaluation of the support requirements of a patient, they work together with the patient’s family, support structure and other health service providers.
Hope social workers complete psychological assessment, develop discharge plans, arrange home care services, provide appropriate referrals, offering support groups, and advocating for patients and their families.
Offering the support and resources that patients need for recovery.

By walking patients and families through their requirements, they help with apps, make phone calls, and provide data and guidance.

Implementing care plans across the lifespan of individuals and with different health conditions.
Social Workers in the Home
Medicare as an dependent service covers home health services provided by Medical Social Workers (MSWs). This implies that in the home there must first be a “qualifying qualified service” such as intermittent skilled nursing services, physical therapy, speech-language pathology, or ongoing occupational therapy. If the requirements are met and the recipient has an impediment to his or her rehabilitation (think of a roadblock) that removes an MSW’s abilities, MSW services would be protected.
The following activities are considered covered medical social services:
- Assessment of the social and emotional factors related to the beneficiary's illness, the need for care, their response to treatment, and adjustment to care
- Assessment of the relationship of the medical and nursing requirements to the home situation, financial resources, and the community resources available
- Services provided on a short-term basis (two to three visits) to a beneficiary's family member or caregiver when it is shown that a brief intervention is necessary to remove a clear and direct impediment to the effective treatment of the beneficiary's medical condition or to the rate of recovery
- Appropriate action to obtain available community resources to assist in resolving the beneficiary's problem
