Social Services / Resources

Project Description

Hope Creek’s Social Services Department advocates for your loved one’s rights by maintaining dignity, respect, and ongoing psychosocial support from admission to discharge.
Our staff works as part of an interdisciplinary team to develop a care plan specific to your loved one’s needs and capabilities. Our Social Services Department can provide information to help you or your loved one apply for Illinois Medicaid and assist with making referrals for hospice care and behavioral health support. If your loved one is here for a short-term stay, we can coordinate necessary homecare services prior to discharge, such as nursing, therapy, and homemakers to ensure their return home is a success.

Care Plans

You and/or your loved one will receive a comprehensive Care Plan. The Care Plan entails Hope Creek staff meeting with the resident and his/her Power of Attorney and/or family members. We will discuss medical care, diet, therapy, personal goals, advance directive, and any topic you and your loved one wish to discuss. You will receive notice when the Care Plan meeting is scheduled.
