Social Work Information, Counseling, and Referral Services

We offer...
  • A strengths-based approach
  • Our professionals value the uniqueness of each individual and adhere to high standards of confidentiality
  • Services are free of charge
A Network of Support

The caregivers’ support group, run by Nazareth’s social work department, offers a place for loved ones to share feelings, concerns, and issues such as loss, depression, financial difficulties, and the need for self care.

Additionally, information and community resources are shared. Referrals from the social worker are made to appropriate community agencies as well as to other clinic services such as creative arts and physical therapy.
