As the executive director of Mount Carmel Guild of Trenton, New Jersey I am pleased that we are launching our second campaign on Caring Crowd. Our home health nursing program offers vital services that allow our elderly to age safely in their own home.
In 1920, the initial inspiration for the Mount Carmel Guild came from Trenton bishop, the Most Reverend Thomas J. Walsh, who had organized a similar charitable association of Catholic women volunteers in 1911, in Buffalo, New York. He led the Diocese of Trenton to purchase a beautiful Italianate structure at 73 North Clinton Avenue to form headquarters for the Mount Carmel Guild. We have served the community and central New Jersey since then.
Home Health Nursing Program
Mount Carmel Guild’s Home Nursing Program assists low-income, frail individuals aged 60 years and over with many economic, medical, and social needs. Our program provides quality, long-term, home-based nursing care for the medically needy and economically disadvantaged older individuals in greater Mercer County. Our patients require on-going care not covered by their Medicare benefits and need assistance with managing geriatric ailments such as diabetes, hypertension, dementia and cardiopulmonary diseases. They may be ambulatory with canes or walkers or in wheelchairs. Our objectives are to increase the medical stability and safety of patients, so they may continue to age in place independently with grace and dignity and avoid institutionalization.
