With the population living longer, Chesapeake Regional is dedicated to improving the healthcare for older adults as it becomes a more important area with every passing year. To help ensure optimal care for all of our older patients, we have partnered with NICHE (Nurses Improving Care for Healthsystem Elders). This leading nurse driven program strives to improve how all hospitals care for older adults by changing the culture of healthcare facilities and shifting the focus toward sensitive and exemplary care.
Through this program, shared knowledge and state of the art training and tools allow for healthcare professionals to take an active role in advancing the care of older adults, leading to improved clinical outcomes, enhanced competency, and greater patient, family and staff satisfaction. NICHE also encourages helping local communities and assists with efforts to serve the community around us, no matter the age.
