Social work

The social work team focuses on the social, emotional and spiritual care of patients, their families or whānau and their friends.

We can support people in their homes or in the Inpatient Unit. Social workers assist with the many practical issues facing patients and their families or whānau.

This includes helping with care plans, conflict resolution and family meetings, financial problem solving and obtaining entitlements to assistance. Our social workers can also assist with planning for wills and funerals.

These matters can be of great concern to patients and we can help in resolving them. Our expertise rests in our thorough knowledge of how people can access the resources and information they require.
