Known as CAPABLE, this evidence-based intervention delivers restorative care to older adults in the community through visits to the home from a nurse, an occupational therapist, and a handyperson. Several types of entities can offer the CAPABLE intervention, and some states encourage CAPABLE’s growth by investing public dollars in the model.
