Social Work for Kidney Disease

Hearing the words, “You need kidney dialysis” can be overwhelming. You probably have a lot of questions. Our social workers help guide you and your family through this difficult time.

Support for people with kidney disease

At CHI Franciscan Health, we’re dedicated to caring for the whole person — body, mind and spirit. In our dialysis centers, we offer social workers who support patients and their families with physical, financial and emotional needs related to chronic kidney disease.

Our social workers provide information and services to help you and your family get the support you need, including:

  • Counseling
  • Health insurance and prescription coverage
  • In-home care needs
  • Medicare and Social Security
  • Transportation to dialysis and other medical appointments

For more information about services through our social workers, contact one of our nearby dialysis center locations.

Our expert nephrologists, many of whom are board certified, lead our experienced teams of specialty nurses, certified dialysis technicians, registered dietitians and other providers. Find a doctor at CHI Franciscan to manage your care.
