Fully CAPABLE: Expanding an Aging-in-Place Program – June CARE Connections

Nearly all of us want to stay in our home as we age. Yet it’s not always easy to “age in place.”

Read how a UW-Madison occupational therapy faculty member is adapting a nurse-developed intervention to support aging-in-place, in the June issue of CARE Connections. Here’s an excerpt:

“CAPABLE is an evidence-based, person-centered program that is delivered in the home by an interprofessional team consisting of an occupational therapist, a nurse, and a handyman,” says Fields.

This month’s CARE Connections also includes COVID-19 resources; a profile of CARE Affiliate and Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education Director Hossein Khalili; and news relating to older adult health and well-being.
