Social Services Department

At The Morrison, the Social Services Department focuses on quality of life. This includes the residents’ perspective on their total living experience in our facility, not just their medical care. Often called “psychosocial well being”, this care includes mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, dementia, and delirium, as well as a range of more social dimensions including loss of relationships, loss of personal control and identity, and adjustment to the facility. Our Social Services Department includes a masters’ level Social Worker, an ordained Chaplain, and a Volunteer Coordinator.

It is The Morrison’s responsibility to foster a climate, policies and routines that enable residents to maximize their individuality, independence and dignity. This climate provides residents with the highest practical level of physical, mental, and psychosocial well being in a loving, supportive, home-like environment.

The Social Worker remains in contact with residents and families providing information, responding to any questions, assisting with financial matters, and obtaining required authorizations for resident care.

Our Chaplain will help residents and families with spiritual needs in an effort to fully support and engage all parties in meeting resident goals for quality of life.

Our Volunteer Coordinator trains and implements community volunteers to work alongside staff to enhance daily activities while honoring the individuality and strengths of each resident.
