Welcome Angelika Danek, LCSW, Senior Social Work Coordinator
I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Angelika Danek, and I am the newest member of the Senior Social Work team. I am assuming the roles and responsibilities of serving you in the capacity of Senior Social Work Coordinator. As a dedicated LCSW, my background includes 18 years as a Community Care Program Coordinator, Clinical Social Worker, Director of Clinical Service and Crisis and Family Services Specialist. Along with my experience in providing guidance, assessment and treatment for diverse client populations combined with an ability to manage programs and build alliances I bring in my passion for working with the elderly. I look forward to getting to know you, as well as providing you with the best possible service.
The following are highlights of Senior Social Work Services:
•Information and Referral - providing information, assistance and referral to local, state and federal services and benefits available to older adults and caregivers.
•Case Management - working with the older adults, their families and healthcare professionals to help assess, plan for and implement ways to allow for their greatest degree of health, safety, independence, and quality of life.
•Counseling - helping older adults improve their mental and emotional health and well-being and find more effective ways to manage the difficult life situations associated with aging.
•Support Groups – providing connections with others who share similar problems, as well as emotional and moral support.
Please don’t hesitate to call 847-588-8420 should you or a senior you know, benefit from these types of assistance.
