Social work services at Louis Brier
Our social worker will generally be your first point of contact with Louis Brier, and she will continue to be available to you throughout your residency.
Our Resident & Family Relations department is available during daytime business hours, Monday through Friday. Our social worker facilitates initial and annual care conferences, ad hoc family meetings and caregiver support groups, and can be called upon for support at any time.
Our social worker works regularly with all residents, assessing changes in cognition and circumstances. She will work with you and your family when additional care is needed and to assist with transition from Intermediate Care to Extended or Special Care levels. Together with our Resident Care team, she’s responsible for making sure your overall quality of life is the best it can be.
Accessing other services and support

Our Resident & Family Relations team is always available to help you and your family obtain information about financial, governmental and other matters, including referrals to community resources and provincial and federal programs, as required.
