SimplyHome's President, Allen Ray, Gives Helpful Tips on Aging in Place

Our homes are part of the fabric of who we are! Aging-in-place means remaining in one's home safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of age, income, or ability level. Modifying a home for continued independent living allows us to call our house a "home" for a lifetime. When considering the option of living longer at home through expanded accessibility and removal of barriers, be sure to utilize a CAPS (Certified Aging in Place Specialist) professional. The CAPS designation was developed by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Remodelors™ Council, in collaboration with the AARP, NAHB Research Center and NAHB Seniors Housing Council. This program provides professionals, like those with SimplyHome, the informational training necessary to accommodate the needs to modify homes for aging in place.
