Clinical Social Work

Carolinas Rehabilitation patients are assigned a clinical social worker to help guide them through the rehabilitation process. Our staff of clinical social workers understands the impact that disability and other diseases can have – both on the patient and their family. Clinical social workers:

  • Help the patient and family understand and anticipate challenges through counseling and education.
  • Serve as an advocate within the patient’s treatment team and assist in understanding the rehabilitation program, treatment plan and expected outcomes.
  • Assist the patient and family as they plan for discharge from the hospital and reinforce a realistic understanding of the patient’s abilities and limits.
  • Ensure arrangements are made according to the physician’s orders for continued services after discharge.
