HELP is a specialized volunteer program that provides extra attention and
care to senior citizens admitted at Clara Maass. Started through a generous
grant from the Healthcare Foundation of New Jersey, our goal is to keep
seniors engaged and as comfortable as possible during their hospital stay.
NICHE Care for Older Adults
Clara Maass Medical Center is proud to carry the
NICHE Designation in recognition of our commitment to patient-centered care
for older adult patients. NICHE hospitals recognize the specific/unique
needs of older adult patients and that patient- and family-centered care
is imperative to creating a positive experience for elders.
WAVE is the first program in our region that brings no-cost, Medicare-funded
wellness visits to seniors in their own communities.
WAVE is a community health service provided by health care experts at Clara
Maass Medical Center who are passionate about the health and well-being
of our community members ages 65 and older. WAVE is made possible by generous
support from The Healthcare Foundation of New Jersey, a longtime partner
of the Clara Maass Medical Center Foundation.
