Social Services

The social workers at Houston Methodist can help ease any stress and anxiety caused by your illness, thus enhancing your recovery.

Social workers are available to provide counseling, guidance and assistance with interpersonal, emotional and financial problems. They can help you make decisions about your care after you leave the hospital, assist you in obtaining community services, arrange for sign language interpreters, help you locate appropriate nursing facilities and answer questions about Living Wills and Durable Powers of Attorney. To request a visit from a social worker, please ask your nurse.
