The points of emphasis of the social service are advising patients on social legislation and administration, preparation for release, introduction of rehabilitation measures, transfer to homes, home visits, and contacts with auxiliary facilities.
Social service staff members keep in close touch with therapists and nursing staff and take part regularly in ward discussions. A common treatment plan is set up together with patients and therapists; dependants and other persons with a care-taking role may also be brought in.
Moreover, the social service staff keep their professional qualifications up-to-date by participation in specialist training and supervision..
