An article by Homecare marketing expert Steve "The Hurricane" Weiss, from Hurricane Marketing Enterprises entitled, "3 Reasons Why Social Workers Refer Who They Do" describes some pointers on how to engage and work with social workers to provide quality care and build your business.
I suggest that you read the entire article and accompanying video here, but as a start, here are the reasons Steve lists:
1) Social Workers Refer to Professionals They Trust
2) Social Workers Refer to Those Who Will Get the Job Done Right
3) Social Workers Refer to Agencies that Properly Handle the Case From its Beginning Stages
More and more, those in the various segments of the healthcare and home care are working together to provide the best care in the most efficient ways.
