Home Remodelers Certified for Aging-in-Place Work

The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Remodelers Council announced in July that 1,000 remodelers have completed the organization's Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS) program created "to help homeowners who need to improve the accessibility of their homes." CAPS education includes "design ideas, technical solutions and even sensitivity training."

Said Remodelers Council Chairman Vince Butler, "The tremendous growth of the CAPS designation means more Americans than ever can modify their homes for safe and independent living, avoiding an unwanted move to an assisted living facility. The vast majority of the mid-life and older population prefers to live in the familiar surroundings of their homes, and CAPS delivers that promise. Advances in accessibility design are additional factors in the growth of CAPS, as nobody wants their house to look like a nursing home."
