About the Program
The Hospital Elder Life Program (HELP) is a comprehensive, evidence-based, patient-care program that provides optimal care for older persons in the hospital. Dr. Sharon K. Inouye and her colleagues at the Yale University School of Medicine originally designed HELP to prevent delirium among hospitalized older persons. The program also prevents functional decline and falls and allows older adults to return home at the maximal level of independence. HELP does this by keeping hospitalized older people oriented to their surroundings, meeting their needs for nutrition, fluids, and sleep and keeping them mobile within the limitations of their physical condition.
If you are serious about delirium prevention and providing the best care for older adults, then HELP is the choice for you. It is the gold standard program, well-tested and cost-effective with a wide network of clinicians to help you with the process. It generally takes about 6-9 months to launch a new program.
