Kiwanis learns about CAP

Published 10:44 am Monday, February 27, 2012

On Feb. 15, the guest speaker for the Tryon Kiwanis Club was Libby Carter, director of the Polk County Community Alternatives Program (CAP). Carter is a registered nurse and has been director of this program for eight years. CAP, which is administered by St. Luke’s Hospital, provides services that allow disabled adults to remain longer in their homes rather than going to a nursing facility. To be eligible for CAP, the patient must be a resident of Polk County, eligible for Medicaid and at risk for nursing home placement.
