Our Medical Social Workers at RAVNAH understand that the stress of an illness or infirmity is not only confined to the patient, it also takes a toll on family and friends. Our licensed social workers provide care for all members involved.

Homebound individuals and their families, including those who are receiving Alzheimer’s home care, palliative care nursing and hospice care, have a breadth of needs. We have dedicated and compassionate social workers available to help our clients access all of the information and resources available to them from a variety of sources.

Rutland Area VNA & Hospice  is the one call to make when you are feeling overwhelmed or confused about how to coordinate all the services required for effective home care and caregiver support.

In addition, social workers can help you prepare an Advance Directive.  An Advance Directive is what some people know as a “living will” or a “durable power of attorney for health care”.  It is a written document that outlines your wishes for medical treatment in the future, including if you are no longer able to make those decisions.

Call us toll-free at (800) 244-0568 to request more information about meeting with a VNA social worker.
