Community Worker Service
Welcome to the Community Worker Service
The Community Worker Service has two functions:
- Casework (Support Service)
- Community Development
1. Casework (Support Service)
The Community worker responds to contact made by Person with MS (PwMS) and their families. At the time of diagnosis and at different points during a person’s MS journey, the Community Worker provides information and support. Community Workers provide support on issues relating, but not limited, to emotional & psychological support, social welfare, medical cards applications, employment, education, housing, symptom management and relationships. Community Workers signpost and refer PwMS and their families to other healthcare professionals, service providers and local voluntary branches.
2. Community Development
The Community Worker ensures that programmes, identified by MS Ireland, are provided where resources are available e.g. Exercise and Physio classes, Self-Management programmes, Newly Diagnosed Days, Information Days etc.
