Certified Aging in Place Specialist (CAPS) focus

This program was developed to provide professionals training that would enable them to accommodate the needs of people over the age of 50, as well as the knowledge they would need to modify their homes for aging in place.

The program focuses specifically on the customer service skills, technical information and  business management training needed to properly serve the needs of older adults.

In layman’s terms, a CAPS certified professional has been trained on the unique needs of seniors, modifying homes so someone can live there longer as they age and addressing the most common barriers in a home.

If you are concerned about making your home ‘aging ready’, finding a CAPS certified professional could be very helpful in making sure your future needs are addressed during your remodeling project.

Why a CAPS professional?

Choosing a Certified Aging in Place Specialist to work with you on your home remodeling project means you are selecting someone who has been trained by the National Association of Home builders in running a business (and crafting home remodel solutions) for seniors and the elderly wishing to age in place.

    Jesse, The short answer is that most of your services will be paid for out of pocket. That’s very generalized, but without knowing what type of services you are providing, it is the safe answer to go with. Some home remodeling, access systems, PERS, monitoring, assistive technology, etc. you can get paid for with federal benefits or insurance. However, that isn’t the norm. Let me know if i can do anything else to help!
