Abstract

Advancing Better Living for Elders is low-cost, offsets functional difficulties, and reduces mortality. It should be considered standard care in homecare, independent living, Medicaid Waiver, and aging long-term care services. Moving ABLE into standard care requires additional steps beyond the randomized trial which present methodological challenges driven by practice setting, workforce and payment exigencies.
