Mission Statement

HELP (Hospital Elder Life Program) is a preventative approach used to decrease delirium in hospitalized older adults. Delirium is a temporary state of confusion resulting in poor health outcomes when it is not recognized and treated. Through participation in daily activities provided by HELP volunteers, patients will maintain or maximize their physical and cognitive functions while admitted.
