What happens at my appointments?
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.
How do I access the service?
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.
Where is the service located?
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.
