Americans are living longer, but disability rates rise with age, bringing increased demand for quality care and support.

The Aging and Disability Evidence-Based Programs and Practices (ADEPP) project helps the public learn about evidence-based interventions for older adults with disabilities. JBA identified interventions for ADEPP that have been tested and can be replicated in communities. The interventions address caregiver and family support; employment; health and wellness; legal, justice, and elder abuse; long-term services and supports; and mental health promotion.

Working with a team of expert consultants, the project coordinated a rigorous review of interventions that were the subject of studies published in peer-reviewed journals. The results of those reviews were summarized on the ADEPP web site, including the following for each intervention:

  • Overview
  • Description of how the intervention has been implemented in community settings
  • Program ratings for research quality and dissemination readiness
  • Program strengths and weaknesses
  • Costs
  • References
