Community Alternatives Program Offers Services to Aging and Disabled Adults
Did you know that of Chatham’s 73,000 residents, one in four is 65 years or older? Or that statewide more than half of residents age 60 and over are caregivers or are being cared for?
Chances are you or someone you know has a family member or friend who is aging and/or disabled and is facing nursing home placement but wishes to remain in at home.
The Chatham County Public Health Department has a program called the Community Alternatives Program for Disabled Adults, or CAP/DA, which provides services that can help maintain these family members in their home. CAP/DA is a Medicaid supported program that includes case management, in-home aide, respite care, telephone alert system and other CAP approved services. Click here to learn more about CAP/DA.
