Feasibility of a CHW Intervention for Functional Decline in Rural Older Adults

Principal Investigator

John Batsis

Study Number



The overarching goal of this study is to conduct a pilot investigation of a CHW-delivered intervention to slow progression of functional decline among at-risk older adults. Using qualitative and quantitative methods, this pilot study will: 1) Evaluate whether a multicomponent intervention delivered by CHWs for rural older adults at risk for functional decline is feasible to deliver and acceptable to older adults and their primary care teams; and 2) Explore the effectiveness of combined Tai Ji Quan: Moving for Better Balance (TJQMBB), behavioral activation (BA), and resource navigation in slowing functional decline among older adults with co-occurring early impairments in cognition, mood, and mobility.
