In brief: See below
Social workers are a valuable member of the rehab team. They provide emotional support for the stress and anxiety often associated with an acute or chronic illness.
They work with families. They can smooth the process of discharge to home. They can teach relaxation techniques and conduct one on one psychotherapy. We have had a social worker at our rehab facility since we opened.
