Home remodeling for aging in place
Studies by the AARP indicate that older homeowners prefer to age in place, which means staying in your home safely; independently and comfortably, for as long as you wish. The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) in collaboration the AARP developed the CAPS program to meet the burgeoning needs of the aging baby boomer housing market. CAPS graduates are specifically trained to work with older and maturing adults to renovate their homes for aging in place.
