My mother needs to go into a memory or nursing home ASAP. To avoid the year long wait list most places have it appears we need the help of a social worker at a hospital. Last time my mother was taken to the ER and admitted the hospital offered a social worker to speak with my father and he refused. He is resistant to the idea of a social worker. I don't know much about them good or bad. Can anyone provide info on their experience working with one?
