St. David’s Foundation is pleased to announce the availability of funds to provide a home-based “aging in place” intervention to low-income older adults in Central Texas through the replication of the Community Aging in Place—Advancing Better Living for Elders (CAPABLE) model, developed by the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing. Applicants eligible to apply for funding to replicate the CAPABLE model include tax-exempt 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations and/or public entities.
CAPABLE uses a multidisciplinary team approach to help vulnerable seniors live safely in their homes. The team consists of three professions– an occupational therapist (OT), a registered nurse (RN), and a handyperson. The team is guided by a commitment that the senior determines his/her own goals for functional improvement. This client-directed approach allows seniors to define the meaningful daily activities they want to achieve, and the CAPABLE team honors their decisions.
The target population to be served by the CAPABLE replication is: low-income (generally defined as under 250% FPL) older adults (generally defined as over age 60), living in Central Texas (Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Travis, Williamson counties) who have the desire and cognitive ability to remain in their home, but who have difficulty with activities of daily living that threaten their ability to remain safely at home.
This request for proposals (RFP) expands and complements the Foundation’s existing commitment to support aging in place for vulnerable seniors.
