I am Here

I AM HERE, Interventions for Assessment of Mental Health in Elders with Resources and Education, was developed by the University of Pittsburgh Institute on Aging and the Geriatric Education Center of Pennsylvania, University of Pittsburgh campus. Older adults suffering from depression, delirium, dementia, substance abuse, thoughts of suicide and anxiety often do not receive the help they need. They have a tendency to suffer in silence, and healthcare workers are not skillful in recognizing signs and symptoms.

The phrase "I am here" is frequently used by healthcare providers to convey concern and to extend assistance as in, "I am here for you" or "I am here to help you." "I am here" is also an unspoken expression of the older adults in our care. In essence they are saying to us, "I am here, in front of you, right now, so take this opportunity to observe my behavior, ask me questions but, most importantly, listen to my responses"
