CAPABLE provides seniors living at home with occupational therapist intervention, nurse intervention along with safety and access to handyman services.
The aim is to make the kinds of home modifications that will promote the mobility of seniors living at home. The research intervention hopes to show that by providing home modifications, medication management, promoting strength, balance, nutrition, and home safety seniors can live independently at home for a longer period of time. In the process seniors avoid skilled care nursing homes and health care costs are decreased.
The project is taking a whole-person approach to intervention and providing a full-scale assessment of each senior’s needs.
