Social workers in home health care

The Caring Touch

Most would agree that people go into social work because they want to give back. Social workers work with clients to assess their needs and help them access services and resources to improve their quality of life. In short, social workers help people solve problems, set goals, and help avoid unnecessary stress.


There are different types of social workers, like those specializing in substance abuse, forensics, or child welfare. And, social workers can be found in a lot of different environments, including home health care.


For patients being discharged from a hospital or facility, having a plan in place can mean the difference between having a successful recovery or being readmitted. The healthcare industry can be overwhelming and confusing; but, patients are not alone. Omnibus Home Health Care can provide access to social workers. This helps patients and their families navigate through challenging times during their healthcare journey and sets them up for the best possible outcomes.


Omnibus Home Health Care provides services to help clients with short-term medical needs. Many clients recently transitioned from hospital to home. Our patients have many different needs. Maybe they are recovering from surgery, injury, or acute illness? Or, they may have a chronic disease such as diabetes, COPD, or heart failure, and a doctor has prescribed short-term home nursing care to help recover or manage their condition.


Returning home after an illness or procedure can be overwhelming. Social workers understand the stress and uncertainty that comes with recovery. We believe that patients who are educated, experience better outcomes. We can provide you with access to excellent social workers who will help patients and their families understand, accept, and follow medical recommendations. Also, with extensive knowledge of the health care system, these social workers provide patients with the resources available to them to improve quality of life and reduce hospital readmissions. Medical social workers are the patient’s biggest advocates and help maintain open lines of communication between patients and healthcare providers.


Our team of knowledgeable and compassionate home health care professionals is here to provide guidance and support for patients and families during challenging times.
