Why choose CAPS?
The NAHB is one of only a few organizations that train people how to best serve the needs of older adults by remodeling their homes. WHen you choose a CAPS to work with, it means you’re choosing someone who took the time to specifically learn about what you’ll need from your home later in life.
The Certified Aging in Place Specialist (CAPS) designation is used to show that a person has been trained by the NAHB to help older adults live in their homes safely as they age.
Through the use of Universal Design principles, a CAPS professional can design a home that will suit your lifestyle now and meet your needs later. CAPS professionals have been taught the most common home remodeling and modifications to create homes that are more accessible and easier to live in.
