The I’M HERE MOVEMENT: improving the culture of care with two little words. It is a global effort to help healthcare professionals embrace the power they have to comfort patients by simply being present. Patients are vulnerable, scared, worried and sicker than ever. Sometimes, the only thing (and the best thing) a health care pro can do is simply reassure the patient with the words “I’m here,” telling the patient that he or she is not alone. In the midst of life altering trauma, Marcus Engel was comforted by a healthcare professional who simply held his hand and reassured him with the words, “I’m here.” This act of loving compassion, combined with the years of experience working with healthcare professionals, inspired Marcus and his wife, Marvelyne, to spread the message of human presence as the cornerstone of caregiving.
