Denver, CO, Dec. 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Canadian province of Nova Scotia will soon be partnering with the CAPABLE National Center to implement the Community Aging in Place, Advancing Better Living for Elders (CAPABLE) program, a program developed by Johns Hopkins School of Nursing (JHSON). CAPALBE partners a nurse, occupational therapist and handyperson to help older people live more independently, such as by making changes to their home. To implement the CAPABLE program, three teams will be trained and supported to serve approximately 300 clients in 2023. "Our seniors deserve the peace of mind of knowing the right care will be there for them when they need it," said Barbara Adams, Minister of Seniors and Long-term Care. "We're committed to providing strategic investments to help our partners deliver that care across the province now and for years to come." Care Synergy, as the CAPABLE National Center is expanding on the work that JHSON has done to scale CAPABLE by educating community organizations on the benefits of becoming a licensed provider and offering CAPABLE in their markets. Care Synergy supports these providers through the implementation and training process, and as they serve clients. Given research showing a reduction of healthcare costs, CAPABLE is poised to support Accountable Care Organizations, Medicare Advantage programs and other healthcare environments seeking quality services with reduced spending for the aging population who wants to remain in their place of residence. “We are very excited to have Nova Scotia implement the CAPABLE program and partner with Care Synergy on the program developed by the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing,” said Tim Bowen President and CEO of Care Synergy. “This home-based program is poised to accelerate given the population health trends and the societal focus on supporting anyone as they age in their place of residence.” About Care Synergy: Care Synergy provides mission-support services for not-for-profit, community-based home healthcare, hospice and palliative care providers serving the Front Range of Colorado including the Colorado Visiting Nurse Association, The Denver Hospice, Pathways and Pikes Peak Hospice and Palliative Care.
