Medical Social Workers connect patients and their families with necessary resources and support in the community,
providing them with supportive counseling and strengthening their network of resources.
Abcor Home Health is proud to now have an on-staff Medical Social Worker available
to support our clients and their families. We strive to assist members of the community in times of distress, crisis, and uncertainty. A Medical Social Worker acts as a client advocate, an educator, and an adviser while working to preserve the health and dignity
of the population they serve. They are able to educate as well as provide access to services related to health problems.
These services are offered free of charge to our members. Please contact us if you would
like to meet with our Licensed Medical Social Worker. Half-hour appointments are available every Tuesday from 1:30 to 5:30 PM and can be conducted at our Arlington Heights location (3201 N. Wilke Rd) or over the phone.

If you would like to enjoy some simple holiday decorations, your homemaker can
assist you. (Please note that Christmas trees and outside lights are excluded.) A festive environment can help in coping with chronic health issues and winter weather.
Your homemaker can assist with making calls and sending greetings to your family
and friends. This includes helping to write and send holiday cards.
Homemakers can help you prepare a simple festive meal. They cannot assist with
larger family dinners, but they can help you with preparatory tasks such as making a grocery list, going shopping for you, and unpacking the groceries when they return.
Happy holidays from the whole team here at Abcor Home Health!
