Illness can cause major changes in your life and the lives of your family members. Our social workers are trained to help you and your family to adjust to such changes, which may be emotional, physical, social or financial.
Social workers also assist in making plans for after your discharge from the hospital, which includes placement to nursing facilities, home health services or meals to be delivered at home.
They can also assist with completing your advance directive. Social work services are available to all patients and families at Nebraska Medicine at no charge. If you would like to talk with a social worker, ask your nurse to call 402.559.4420.
