|Providing care in the security of your own home is not a new concept. Visiting nurses have been providing care to people in their homes since the 1700's. The idea of a "visiting nurse" was established in America in 1880. The earliest VNA's in America were modeled after a concept established in Liverpool, England, by William Rathbone and Florence Nightingale.||
of Visiting Nurses Association (VNA), a non-profit
organization, can be traced to the Flower and Fruit Mission,
which began in 1898.VNA services came to include skilled nursing,
physical therapy, speech therapy, home health aides, and occupational
therapy, along with Mobile Meals and The Health Watch Emergency Response
Hands 2 Help, LLC was founded in 1999 in response to a need for regulated private duty services for residents of Big Horn and Park County Wyoming. Initially, Hands 2 Help, LLC developed a holistic philosophy that offered the elderly a cost effective alternative to facility placement. Clients benefited from the application of knowledge related to environmental adaptation. This approach strengthens a person's level of functioning and long-term ability to remain at home safely. A special interest in dementia management contributed to the Agency's current reputation for providing concrete solutions for anyone facing this debilitating disease.
The Hands 2 Help team demonstrates a high level of professional, solution-orientated care to Agency clients. The team routinely assists clients with their medication regimen or appointments with their health care. Hands 2 Help works cooperatively with both of the hospital based Medicare certified agencies to supplement skilled services. Successes include appropriate pain management so that an elderly long term shut in regained the confidence and skill to return to driving; early identification and correction of cataracts so that a 93-year-old client could see. On more than one occasion, physicians have credited Hands 2 Help staff with saving a person's life because of prompt access into the healthcare delivery system. Distant family members greatly appreciate the regular contact and objective, reassuring feedback provided to them on an ongoing basis.
2 Help, LLC is owned and operated by English native, Coralie
Herrick who originally trained at London's prestigious St.
Bartholomew's Hospital. She graduated from the University of Oklahoma
with a Master's Degree in Community Health Nursing
in 1988 when she was inducted into Sigma Theta Tau, the Honor
Society for Nurses.
