Barbara Klauser, LCSW

Social Work

Social Worker, Banner Alzheimers Institute
I believe care for a patient or family member starts with developing trust. Getting to know my patients and their strengths is my number one priority. From there I believe it is a joint venture working together to improve their quality of life despite their illness. I also believe education is vitally important. The more one can understand their condition and accept it, the better they will be able to cope overall. The team is not just the professionals but also the patient and family members working together for common goals.
