About Hands 2 Help
How Hands 2 Help Was Formed
Hands 2 Help was founded in 1999 by Coralie Herrick in response to a need for regulated private duty services for residents of Big Horn and Park County, Wyoming. Initially, Hands 2 Help 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.
A Collaborative Working Relationship with Local Physicians and Agencies
The Hands 2 Help team is state licensed, and demonstrates a high level of professional, solution-orientated care to our clients. The team routinely assists clients with medication management or appointments with their doctors. Hands 2 Help works cooperatively with both of the hospital-based Medicare certified agencies to supplement skilled services. On more than one occasion, physicians have credited Hands 2 Help staff with saving a person's life because of prompt access into the health care needs. Distant family members greatly appreciate the regular contact and objective, reassuring feedback provided to them on an ongoing basis.
