San Diego Social Workers for Seniors - St. Paul's PACE
St. Paul’s PACE social workers understand that when you are in the hospital, your daily challenges don’t go away. Your social worker will visit with you and work with the hospital to ensure that your needs are met, while also helping you take care of anything needed at home.
St. Paul’s PACE Social Workers Can Help You:
- Understand how PACE works and how to get services
- Maintain appropriate housing
- Find community resources for needs such as food or finances
- Navigate Social Security, Supplemental Security Income, Disability, and Medi-Cal
- Get support for mental health issues, including counseling
- Navigate social systems (i.e., utility bills, home management)
- Link to the community, caregivers, and community agencies
- Arrange financial management, if needed
- Communicate with family members
From filling out paperwork and taking care of bills to meeting the requirements of living in your home, our social workers assist you as needed. They can connect you with San Diego supportive services like food banks and transportation companies. Having even a little help every so often makes your life better and easier and gives out-of-town family members peace of mind.
In the case that you are hospitalized, your St. Paul’s PACE social worker will assist with your discharge plan. Our social workers will also act as liaisons to skilled nursing/rehabilitation facilities, if needed.
As with all PACE services, social services are provided on an “as needed” basis.
The day center is often described as a “Wellness Center” because our goal is to offer comprehensive care while improving every aspect of your life fostering wellness.
