HELP PROGRAM
What is HELP? The Hospital Elder Life Program (HELP) was developed by health care experts at Yale University to prevent delirium and physical decline in hospitalized older adults. HELP is now part of quality health care in more than 200 hospitals in the United States and internationally. 

The Hospital Elder Life Program at UnityPoint Health works with nurses, doctors and other health care professionals. HELP staff and volunteers receive special program training and education to provide activities and services to assist in keeping patients engaged and active. 

We are looking for several volunteers to join the HELP team at Iowa Methodist Hospital. College students majoring in all areas of health care and social services are encouraged to apply.  A 6-month commitment is required.
