Become a CJE Senior Life Emergency Department Eldercare Navigator (EDEN)

Would you like to become a trusted guide for Older Adults in the Glenbrook Hospital Emergency Department? Join EDEN: Emergency Department Eldercare Navigators.

Emergency Room visits can take a damaging toll on older adults, and can magnify anxiety and fear, especially when family members live far away or are unavailable, but these problems can be remediated. We have a volunteer opportunity called EDEN which will provide assistance, and a calming influence, and will improve communication when an emergency department visit is required.

The next training will be offered in April.
