Medical Social Services

Kaweah Delta Home Health’s medical social workers are an important part of your care team. If you need any psychosocial support, a medical social worker from our staff is available to begin the process of helping you on your road to recovery.  

The first step a social worker will take is to assess your needs and identify any issues that might delay your recovery time. They will also meet with you and your family to give you information on all of the resources and support available to you in Tulare, Eastern Kings, and Southern Fresno counties. Medical social workers also help patients with a variety of other needs, including long range planning, advance directives, and general care options.
