At the Nemours Children's Health, Jacksonville, we believe successful health care includes managing the impact an illness has on your family, communicating effectively with your care team, and taking advantage of available resources and services.
Our social workers provide compassionate, professional, and culturally-sensitive assistance to help you cope with your child’s special condition, and get your family on the road to healing. Social Work teams assist our patients and families in a variety of ways:
Explaining the condition and treatments, answering questions, and talking about your feelings and concerns.
Providing ongoing needs assessment, service coordination, information and referrals, and transition to adult care
Establishing and assisting clinic support groups for parents and youth
Providing talk therapy and coping strategies and making mental health assessments
Identify state and federal programs and access nonprofit services as needed
