The AGS CoCare®: HELP program, formerly known as The Hospital Elder Life Program, originally created by Dr. Sharon Inouye, is a well-studied, effective, and innovative model of hospital care designed to prevent both delirium and functional decline. Join us at the AGS CoCare®: HELP Pre-Conference Session, as we discuss the program’s focus on targeted interventions implemented by a skilled interdisciplinary team (including a geriatric nurse specialist, specially trained Elder Life Specialists, and trained volunteers) that address a broad scope of geriatric issues known to contribute to cognitive and functional decline during hospitalization. Come learn about implementation strategies and how your hospital can adopt the program, as well as strategies for sustainability & longevity to ensure success of AGS CoCare®: HELP in the hospital.
