Social Services




Social Services are an important part of our health care team at JCFHD. Our social workers help patients and families cope with the challenges and problems that can be brought on by illness or life changes.



Social Workers assist with:




Advance Directives




Social Services support a patient's/resident's right to participate in making decisions about their health care. They provide patients/residents and families with information about advance health care instructions including living will, health care treatment directives, and durable powers of attorney.



JCFHD respects a patient's right to participate in planning his/her health care, either directly through written instructions, or by appointment of another person to make decisions when the patient is unable to communicate his/her wishes.



Advanced Health Care Directives are Notarized free of charge.
