The social worker acts as a channel of communication between the family environment and the staff, regarding the patients' needs or the resolution of various obstacles that may arise during the rehabilitation stage

Our social service sector is aimed at the psychosocial rehabilitation of the patient. The social workers, based on the information they receive about the family and social environment, set out to help the patients adjust smoothly to the Rehabilitation Center environment. The social worker acts as a channel of communication between the family environment and the staff, regarding the patients’ needs or the resolution of various obstacles that may arise during the rehabilitation stage. During hospitalization, creative groups engaging on various different projects take place regularly, where the patients get to actively participate aiming at socialization, activation of cognitive functions and psychological empowerment. Lastly, a particularly important task that the social services assume concerns informing the patient regarding the determined level of disability, and then about the related benefits, disability pensions or any other allowances to which the patient is entitled.
