Health Ambassador Teams for Seniors (HATS)
Dakota Geriatrics’ Interprofessional Community Service Learning program, called HATS, seeks to introduce students to the full spectrum of elderly heath status and older adult wellness promotion. A dyad of interprofessional healthcare trainees is assigned to perform a modified annual wellness exam on volunteer older adults via zoom format.
To the members in our community, we’re always seeking volunteer older adults for a FREE visit with our students. Please view the flyer for further details.
Know and align care with each older adult's specific health outcome goals and care preferences including, but not limited to, end-of-life care and across settings of care.
If medication is necessary, use Age-Friendly medication that does not interfere with What Matters to the older adult, Mobility or Mentation across setting of care.
Prevent, identify, treat, and manage dementia, depression, and delirium across setting of care.
Ensure that older adults move safely every day in order to maintain function and do What Matters.
