Discharge Planning / Social Services
When patients complete their short-term rehabilitation, our Social Workers coordinate the services needed following their discharge, such as continuing care from a visiting nurse, home health aides, Meals on Wheels, or physical and/or occupational therapies at home, as well as any equipment needed.
Additional services provided by our Social Services Department include: financial and insurance information, advanced directives information, family support groups and bereavement support groups.
Avon Health Center contracts with many insurance providers and will coordinate direct billing with most major companies. Our Admissions Director will be happy to guide you through the necessary procedures to ensure coverage.
