Community Aging in Place, Advancing Better Living for Elders (CAPABLE)

The Community Aging in Place, Advancing Better Living for Elders (CAPABLE) is a client-directed, home-based intervention to increase mobility, function, and capacity to “age in place” or “age in community.”

How it works: CAPABLE consists of time-limited services, in a series of visits from an occupational therapist (OT), a registered nurse (RN), and a handy worker, who work in collaboration with the program participant. Generally, 10 visits occur over the course of 4 to 6 months and are conducted in the participant’s home. A key component of this approach is having the participant drive the goal setting. The participant brainstorms strategies with team members to arrive at preferred ways to reach goals. Each action builds on the previous visits and focuses on the participants’ capacity to function at home.

CAPABLE is an evidence-based program brought to you by Brothers Redevelopment, Inc. in partnership with the Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Finance and The CAPABLE National Center on behalf of the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing.
