A Family Experience
When a child needs to spend time in the hospital, it affects every member of the family. At Children’s Health, trained clinical social workers from Family Support services are available to help families with caring expertise 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The hospital can be a large and overwhelming place, but our friendly staff will help you find the resources you need and sort out the services available to make everyone in the family comfortable while we help the patient feel better.
We are here to assist the entire family. We will help you understand the patient’s diagnosis and how to advocate for your child. We also will introduce you to others who are going through the same experiences and issues that you are.
We’ll help you find answers to any financial questions you may have so that you can focus on your child, and we’ll help solve any problems that may arise in balancing work and your other responsibilities.
We help families find the resources they need to manage – in the areas of school services, crisis intervention, individual and family counseling, or community support networks.
Do you have other questions? Just ask us. We’re here to help.
