    Stanislaus Albert Saint Lucia I think that social services is an essential part of our lives because it causes a small level of balance within society because if not it can be a whole lot of critical situations that society would have to deal with and spend a lot more of their revenue on in building centers to rehabilitate individuals.So therefor it is important that social work be done with knowledge of the situation, to be approach with individual skills not trampling on anyone's values and to be mindful of the process that is being use.

    Rebecca Kern United States of America Lynn and Arthur with the guidance of their social worker Rita . She gives them the opportunity to still be somewhat self-sufficient. Lynn and Arthur would probably not do as well mentally or physically. More than likely be moved into a permanent facility they would be separated and that would probably be traumatic for them. Either way they will need someone of assistance from the government. For individuals that have disabilities whether it's mental or physical they need someone to stand with them and talk for them. There'll always be people who disagree is because They have not walked in the individual shoes or had someone close them with the same problems. Rita will have to process and think about how to help both individuals that way they can be successful.
