Aging-in-place means that you are prepared to live in your home throughout your life,
enjoying family, community and a familiar environment that you can adapt to your
changing health conditions.
It also means living within your financial means, so you can maintain a comfortable
standard of living while living in your home for many years.
Why do I need a Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS)?
The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and AARP collaborated on the CAPS
program to teach the technical, business management and customer service skills essential
to compete in the home modification market for the aging-in-place. If you are thinking
of making modifications to your home finding a CAPS should be the first thing you
do. P.S. George is a CAPS.
