Aging in Place
What Does Aging in Place Mean?
You’ve likely heard the term “aging in place” and perhaps you’ve wondered what it means. Simply put, aging in place means remaining in your home safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of your age, income, or ability level.
If this sounds intriguing, you’re not alone. In a recent survey conducted by AARP, the nonprofit organization that advocates on behalf of those 50+, eight out of 10 people age 45 and older say they want to remain in their homes and communities for as long as possible. This is where we can help.
The CAPS Designation
The National Association of Homebuilders (NAHB) developed a Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS) designation program to teach professionals how to meet the evolving needs of seniors. Whether you require minor modifications or major renovations, you’ll want to select a Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS) professional to ensure that your home has functional spaces that are as safe and practical as they are beautiful. And because we are CAPS-certified contractors and CAPS designers, we understand the needs of seniors and believe in the importance of our work. There’s nothing more satisfying to us than using our talents to give you the gift of independence.
