    REPATRIATION: This involves returning patients to their original places. Patients that are abandoned on the ward by their relatives after discharge are usually repatriated to their respective homes within the nation as the occasion demands.
    HOME VISITS: Home visiting is an important aspect of the casework relationship. It is a technique of social casework practice that involves going to patients’ homes to study the home environment and social relationships within the immediate family and to see how the home situation has contributed to their problems. Social workers pay home visits to the homes of patients that are on admission and those that have been discharged. This avails them the opportunity of monitoring their progress, assess the home environment of patients to ascertain the social and economic statuses of patients, and identifying environmental factors that affect such patients with the aim of offering effective social intervention services.
