CAPABLE Program Has Real Impact on Local Seniors

Hear first hand accounts of the positive impact the CAPABLE program has had for a local senior living at home.

CAPABLE is designed to make it easier for seniors to age in place at home. The program focuses primarily on low-income seniors and has proven to enhance the health and quality of life of participants. CAPABLE teams a nurse (RN), an occupational therapist (OT), and a handy worker to collectively address physical challenges caused by the aging process that make it difficult for seniors to continue living at home while using the strengths of the seniors themselves to improve safety and independence.

“CAPABLE is a life changing program for so many people living with chronic illness due to age or disability.  Our foundation is pleased to play a small part in helping to expand CAPABLE and improve the health and independence of seniors in our region,” said Roosevelt Hairston, CEO of The Hairston Foundation.
