The mission of Hurley Medical Center is to ensure that we are always ready when someone faces a serious injury, complex illness, or high risk condition.
The Hospital Elder Life Program (HELP) at Hurley Medical Center is a comprehensive program of care designed to prevent delirium and functional decline.
This program provides targeted interventions including cognitive orientation, socialization, sleep enhancement strategies, exercise and mobilization, feeding assistance and preventing dehydration all through our trained volunteers.
HELP is a very unique opportunity in the hospital which allows our trainedHELP volunteers to go bedside and provide 'hands-on' care to our elderly patients.
