Social Work

Social Work can provide you with a Case Management service delivery approach if you have complex and multiple needs. Ongoing client contact by a professional with competence in case management ensures that suitable, accessible and co-ordinated services are available to meet your needs, with the aim of improving your quality of life. Case management has a focus on advocacy, timeliness of interventions and the promotion of self-management.

Aims of Social Work

The aims of social work case management are to:

  • Provide a comprehensive and holistic needs assessment in order to promote, maintain or improve the optimum level of functioning in the community, and quality of life
  • Develop a care plan in consultation with you
  • Coordinate services in order to provide a single point of contact for you and other service providers
  • Facilitate and enhance your choices and action in health and lifestyle matters, by making information accessible and understandable
  • Enhance the service system by advocating for improvements in service provision and linking across services and informing policy making
