Terry Sims - Community Social Worker & Resource Navigator

I joined the Lakeland PCN on March 3, 2014.  I have made St. Paul my home for the past 26+ years where I previously worked with Alberta Child & Family Services in child protection/case management and foster care.  I was also involved with the Lakeland Centre for Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) Diagnostic team for 10+ years and have experience working with individuals with various disabilities, disorders, and high medical needs. 
 
The basis of my program is to work with patients/clients to assess, resolve, prevent or lessen the impact of social and economic stresses, physical, and mental health related issues in order to enhance the care they receive from their family physicians, nurses, and other health team members.  I will work with patients/clients where best meets their needs:  in their homes, in their home community, or in my office.  I work collaboratively with the medical clinics, specialists, and the various community support services in each of the communities the Lakeland PCN serves.
