Social Work Support and Navigation

Adults age 18 or over who need inclusive support for issues that affect a person’s physical, emotional, social and financial well-being. Our PCN Social Workers can offer navigation assistance to community programs, advocacy, application assistance (e.g. AISH) and community connection opportunities.

Our PCN Social Workers will meet with you at an individual appointment to discuss your needs and develop an individualized plan of care with you based on your goals, and offer assistance in navigating to other supports if required.

You can access this service by asking for a referral from your Peaks to Prairies PCN family physician, or by self-referral by calling 587-796-0765. This service is by appointment only.

Our PCN Social Workers see patients in the clinics located throughout our PCN, or at our PCN location in Olds at 4920-50th Ave. Virtual appointments (phone or Zoom) are also offered. Days of work may vary depending on location, so please ask your Social Worker about scheduling options when booking your initial appointment.
