Social Services / Discharge Planning
Our Social Service staff provides ongoing support and listening ears to assist our residents in the initial adjustment to living at the Crawford County Care Center and then the ongoing concerns and needs that arise in the life of our residents.
The social service assistants assist with discharge planning, making the arrangements for home health care services and medical equipment needed at home, and also making referrals to Hospice.
Social services also monitor the overall emotional needs of our residents and makes referral to a Professional Counselor who visits weekly or to a Psychiatrist for maintaining and adjusting medications as needed.
We have contracts with several local Hospice agencies that provide Hospice care to the resident and their families.
A Psychologist and MSW are available for counselling services and to provide support for those who are in need of extra encouragement and the acceptance of their need of 24 hour nursing care.
Other Physician Services available:
- Podiatry Care

- Dental Care
- Psychiatric Care

The ladies may have their hair washed and set approximately every two weeks and cut monthly. Permanent waves are given once every ninety days, if desired.
