VA Social Work Services
Social workers at the Providence VAMC are licensed master’s degree-level clinicians, who can be found throughout a variety of programs providing a wide range of services to Veterans. If you have a question or problem, a social worker may be able to assist, or direct you to the person who can help. Social workers provide clinical case management, care coordination, individual and group psychotherapy, psychosocial assessment, home health care coordination, community education, caregiver supports, and end-of-life and advance care planning.
Our social workers assist Veterans across the continuum of care, including in collaboration with Primary Care, specialty medical and mental health programs, new Veterans who are transitioning into VA care, geriatric Veterans, and those who live with chronic mental and physical illness. Additionally, social workers can help connect Veterans and their families to financial and/or housing assistance, benefits information and enrollment, or with obtaining services to help you age in place. VA social workers accomplish this by completing assessments and making referrals to both VA and community-based resources. Enrollment in specific programs is based on eligibility.
