Aging in place means remaining in one’s home safely, independently and comfortably, regardless of age, income or ability level. It means the pleasure of living in a familiar environment throughout one’s maturing years and the ability to enjoy the familiar daily rituals and the special events that enrich all our lives.

Build A Forever Home And Enjoy It

If you plan on building your forever home, you want to spend as many years as you can enjoying it. As a Certified Aging-In-Place Specialist we take great care to focus on the details that make aging in place possible.

To age in place, you will need a house with accessibility and maneuverability. These features range from adjusted countertops heights, to multifunctional first floor master suites, and even private elevators. We will build your dream home and ensure that it remains easy to live in for years to come.

Why Hire A Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist?

The NAHB Remodelers of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) in collaboration with Home Innovation Research Labs, NAHB 50+ Housing Council, and AARP developed the Certified Aging-In-Place Specialist (CAPS) program to address the growing number of consumers that want to age in place.

As a CAPS professional, we have the answers to your questions. We have been taught the strategies and techniques for designing and building aesthetically enriching, barrier-free living environments. The CAPS program goes beyond design to address the codes and standards, common remodeling expenditures and projects, product ideas and resources needed to provide comprehensive and practical aging-in-place solutions. CAPS graduates pledge to uphold a code of ethics and are required to maintain their designations by attending continuing education programs and participating in community service projects.
