As part of the Social Work Clinical Practice, Social Workers carry out an in-depth assessment with clients (the Patient and their family). The objective of the assessment is to identify client expectations, wishes, concerns, challenges and needs, by:

  1. Helping clients through their bereavement re their present condition and situation;
  2. Enabling and empowering clients to resolve those issues which can be resolved, help the families to come to terms with the presenting situation, bridge their differences and look for new/alternative ways of coping;
  3. Encouraging the carers to participate in the care process, accept support and look for support, understand that their own health and well-being is also important;
As a result of the Social Work assessment, the Social Worker will:
  • Build a reciprocal trusting relationship between the client/s and the social worker;
  • Refer client/s to other agencies as is appropriate;
  • Help client/s plan for discharge after the Patient’s In-Patient or Day Hospital/Out-Patient rehabilitation period;
  • Make available application forms and information, about the network of community services;
