CAPS PROGRAM

 

WHAT IS "CAPS"?

The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), in collaboration with AARP and other experts, developed the Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS) program.  It is a program designed to help identify the unique needs of older individuals, who desire to live independently in their own home. 

 

A Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist can:

 

  • Recommend updates that will help a person live independently in their own home.

  • Work with a contractor and/or health professionals to develop a home modification plan based on the safety and functional needs of an individual or household.

  • Collaborate with a licensed contractor or interior designer about design strategies and techniques for creating attractive, barrier-free living spaces.

  • Provide information about building codes and standards, and useful products and resources to promote a safe, active and independent lifestyle.

 

Our personnel are certified CAPS professionals and are available to evaluate your home or your loved one's home to provide a safe and independent lifestyle filled with dignity and respect.
