So it was a pretty quiet, yet busy past few days for me this week in Socialworkerland.
I have been working on getting some upcoming discharges for nursing home clients moving.
Interviewed with another potential client. I am pretty sure she will be signing up to work with our agency, but wanted to meet with another provider as a courtesy.
I finished several Initial Service Plans which is always a huge big project.
Working with a new broker who has been a huge help in locating housing in an area that is hard to find apartments for my people.
Also been dealing with the usual client crisis moments.
I have started to work with Adult Protective Services (APS) for one case. I requested setting up a joint visit next week with our lady, and the worker asked if we could show up unannounced.
This is something I try to avoid with many of my people if at all possible.
Our client is already pissed off that APS has been called, I want to try to salvage our working relationship as much as possible by giving her the heads up that we are planning to visit.
Next week I have to go down to the lovely local Department of Social Services office to begin the process of applying for a "one-shot-deal" for emergency assistance for one of my clients coming out of the nursing home in a few weeks.
Today is my Friday work from home day, and so far it's been pretty quiet. It's only 9:30 in the morning though. Usually the action occurs later in the day on Fridays!
What have you been up to this week in Socialworkerland?
Anything interesting coming up? (Well, that you are planning for that is LOL ;)
