Social Service

Clinical social service accompanies and supports patients and their relatives in solving problems arising from illness and disability that are affecting their lives on psychological and social levels. With the help of individual and family counseling, the university medical center Knappschaftskrankenhaus Bochum’s social service helps patients to process and master the changes in life and motivate them to mobilize their resources, make decisions and solve problems. They inform about further treatment options after the hospital stay and provide respective addresses. Additionally, the social service team submits applications for rehabilitation or the examination and grading of care dependency before the admission to a nursing home.
