CAPS Solutions

You may have seen “CAPS Solutions” under the list of current services we offer but, not everyone is familiar with what that means. CAPS= Certified Aging-In-Place Specialist. This is basically someone who can come in and help disabled/maturing homeowners to modify their current home to fit their needs as they age.

“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 will soon require these modifications. While most CAPS professionals are remodelers, an increasing number are general contractors, designers, architects, and health care professionals.”*

Studies show that as people age, they prefer to stay living in their own homes. Our CAPS solutions services prevents aging homeowners from either having to worry about buying and selling in their later years, moving in with family, or having to move to an assisted living community. Modifying your current home helps ensure comfortability and removes uncertainty about the future. Most issues for aging and disabled homeowners have to do with maneuverability. We proactively address the issues that things like emergency alert systems are made for. While these are great solutions for backup, we try to prevent the problem before it happens.

Here are just a few examples of safety features that can be updated as part of CAPS Solutions:

  • Fold down seat in shower
  • Light in shower stall
  • Slip resistant flooring
  • Raising the toilet to sit higher than a standard toilet
  • Lower bathtub for ease of access
  • Tub/shower controls placed towards outer edge of bathing area
