Aging In Place

HFHMM CAPABLE serves older adults who are experiencing challenges with Activities of Daily Living (AOL’s) by providing a more holistic approach to the idea of Aging In Place.

With the CAPABLE program, income qualified older adults have access to an Occupational Therapist and Registered Nurse, both of whom will conduct a series of visits in order to assist in the identification of challenges, setting of goals, and outlining of action plans for those goals. Within the parameters of the program, Habitat for Humanity is able to provide minor home modifications per the recommendation of the occupational therapist, which are geared toward improving independence.

 

Qualifications:

Applicant(s) Must:
• Be at least 65 years of age or older.

• Be a Montgomery Co. or Prince George’s Co. resident (applicant does not have to be the owner of the home, but the owner must be willing to sign all forms associated with the home modification piece of the program).
