General Social Service

The Social Service at the Municipal Hospital of Pirmasens complements the medical and nursing care provided in the hospital. In the sense of a holistic picture of the human being, our Social Service staff help the patient cope with the many difficulties and concerns that may arise during a hospital stay and thereafter.

The Social Service advises patients and their families

  • in personal life crises relating to the illness and personal life circumstances
  • in all questions of extended rehabilitation (follow-up treatment, aftercare cure, geriatric rehabilitation measures)
  • in the nursing care of patients following the hospital stay (home care, respite care, inpatient care)
  • in housing matters (assisted living or living designed to fit the needs of the disabled)
  • in cases of economic and social difficulty
  • in the preparation of powers of attorney and living wills

The staff of the Social Service maintain contacts with:

  • Local counselling centres
  • Outpatient nursing services
  • Retirement and nursing homes
  • A very wide assortment of funding agencies (health insurance scheme, social securities offices, pension insurance carriers), to help submit applications

Social Service staff are subject to a confidentiality obligation and treat all matters in confidence.
