If you are in need of special support, a healthcare social worker can support you and promote your opportunities to continue to be independent and active. The goal is to work with you to find solutions that reduce the obstacles or limitations that the illness / crisis entails.

You can get in touch, for example, if you need any of the following:

  • support in matters concerning your ability to work and study
  • help sorting out your options for service or rehabilitation
  • you are worried about your housing situation
  • support in everyday life or with life management
  • you have questions about social protection and finances
  • support to be able to participate in society
  • you wish to discuss things that have to do with your family’s current life situation.

You and the social worker will evaluate your situation together. The social worker will then offer you psychosocial support and present you with information about your opportunities and rights. The social worker will make an assessment of your overall situation and can, together with you, your relatives, your network contacts and other professional groups, participate in the planning of your continued care, service and rehabilitation.

There is a social worker on every ward and outpatient clinic, who can be reached on weekdays from 08:00-16:00. No referral is needed, you can get in touch, for example, by telephone. Visits to the social worker are free of charge.
