Community Alternative Program for Disabled Adults and Children (CAP-DA/C)

The Program

CAP-DA is a Medicaid funded program that allows individuals who are at least 18 years of age or older to live in a private home rather than a nursing home. CAP-C is a program for disabled children under the age of 19 who have serious medical conditions requiring long-term care.

Granville Health System has on staff registered nurses and social workers who meet with individuals and their caregivers to identify the individual’s strengths and needs. The person is then given a case manager who will develop a plan of care that builds on the strengths and needs identified. The case manager remains a part of the care for that individual throughout their participation in the CAP-DA or CAP-C program.
