Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The Upper Valley Community Nursing Project meets the needs of our older population who are aging in place and may need support from a community nurse – a health professional – who visits individuals where they live to help to problem solve and navigate the health care system.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Upper Valley Community Nursing Project

Our project is based on a holistic philosophy of nursing, which dates back to the mid 19th century—a time when nurses focused on the health of individuals, families, and groups within a community.

Our focus is on the health of older people drawn together by such commonalities as location, religious affiliation, social connections, or fraternal association.

Our goal is to add a health professional to the informal network of volunteers already providing care for elders, and to facilitate the placement of a nurse in a community to address non-acute needs of elders at home.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The overarching goal of the UVCNP is to add a health professional to the informal network of volunteers already providing care for older adults. We aim to help individuals to remain independent and living at home and to facilitate the placement of a nurse in a community where she or he can best address non acute needs at home.

HOW UVCNP WORKS
To help reach our goals, the UVCNP will :
Locate and investigate the best examples and characteristics of successful community nursing practices
Partner with the interested communities to create a road map for the development of a community nursing program which addresses existing volunteer initiatives, current practice, legal, ethical, and regulatory concerns
Explore with local community the possibility of participating in a pilot project which engages and supports nurses to provide CN services to designated communities
Establish a formal system of support to provide ongoing information, educational opportunities and clinical discussions with the CN to minimize the professional isolation often associated with this work
Identify appropriate outcomes that measure effectiveness of the UVCNP
Initiate discussions about research projects that might emanate from the UVCNP
Establish a mechanism for communities to obtain assistance in searching for funds to sustain individual CN programs.

The UVCNP has a board of directors dedicated to the work because many of the members are skilled and experienced in the field of health care. They are each embedded within local communities to make a difference to the work of aging in place. The mission, vision and values all are focused on the health care of the aging adult in New Hampshire and in Vermont.

UVCNP has built strong partnerships within communities surrounding Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center.
UVCNP has competent and skilled volunteers and consultants working to address the goals of the organization.

UVCNP has established community nurses in over ten towns in NH and in VT.
We have become a 501(c)3 only within the past year.
Just by volunteers, we have been able to create strong partnerships who are dedicated and have the same passion as the board and nurses to advance the ability for older adults to age-in-place.
UVCNP is recognized as a cutting-edge model to meet the needs of older adults who choose to age in place.
