StimulusBrand helps Mount Carmel Guild promote its FREE In-Home Nursing Care program across Mercer County
StimulusBrand Communications is launching a multi-media campaign promoting Mount Carmel Guild’s In-Home Health Nursing Program that provides free, in-home visits from Registered Nurses to qualified Seniors in Mercer County.
Beginning May 1, the campaign will include promotional billboards, shuttle bus panels, brochures, fliers, a local television feature and more, with a view to expanding the Guild’s accredited nursing care program across Mercer County.
Targeted to low-income, homebound individuals 60 years and older, the initiative provides ongoing in-home nursing support not covered by Medicare.
In describing the program, Mary Inkrot, Executive Director of Mt. Carmel Guild said it succeeds because they also offer care management and not just nursing services. “Our nurses routinely check for signs of elder abuse, food insecurity, and safety hazards. They are in frequent communication with each patient and often coordinate with doctor’s offices, case managers, pharmacies, and families outside of home visits.”
“Further,” she continued, “our nurses provide comfort and companionship to those who are lonely and make referrals to other services such as Meals on Wheels and transportation to and from medical appointments.”
The Guild’s ability to offer free in-home nursing care is made possible through the generosity of funders such as the Mercer County Office on Aging and proceeds from its Aging-in-Place Appeal. “Sometimes, individuals are skeptical that our services are completely free of cost to our patients, but it is absolutely true,” Inkrot said.
The mission of the program is to improve the quality of life for patients by increasing their medical stability and safety, so they may age in place independently with grace and dignity. It was accredited in 2019 by the National Institute for Home Care Accreditation and today maintains a high quality of service for all patients.
