Elder Horizons Program

The Elder Horizons Program at Yale New Haven Hospital offers additional training opportunities for volunteers. After 40 hours of volunteer work providing key interventions to prevent delirium, volunteers have the opportunity to expand their role as enrollment volunteers. 

Volunteers interested in pursuing a career as a healthcare professional have the opportunity to enroll patients into the Elder Horizons Program, gathering important patient information at the bedside and collaborating with Elder Horizons team members. Students in our program have expressed an interest in medicine, nursing, physical therapy, social work, gerontology and public health. This is an exciting opportunity for you to be an active participant in our delirium prevention program. If you are interested in being an enrollment volunteer, contact:
