March is Social Work Month!
Last Month, the Landmark Group celebrated National Social Workers Month! Do you know what a Social Worker does? According toa publication from the Omsbudsman program, a Long Term Care Social Worker “helps the person who is entering a facility make the transition from a previous living environment to life in an institutional setting while meeting the social/emotional comfort needs of that resident. “
“Once the resident is established, the social worker assures the resident's continuing needs are met and that the person is given the opportunity to participate in planning for continued care in the facility, transfer, or discharge back into the community. Although the resident is the main focus, it should be noted that much of the social worker’s time may be spent working with the family. “
Our Social workers work within all of the moving pieces within the facility. The Landmark Group is thankful for your dedication and support to the organization as well as the patients and their families!
