CAPS – Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist & Universal Design
None of us will escape the aging process, but most everyone will age differently depending on their genetic makeup, lifestyle and environment.
Aging-in-Place and Universal Design embraces safety from a convenience standpoint rather than a ‘warning’ beacon. It becomes a virtually invisible element of a home when done well.
What about a sudden injury or illness – is your home ready?
While no one sets out to get injured, or is happy about being confronted with a progressive illness diagnosis, and for those thinking that they are not ‘there yet’, consider the following;
- The financial cost of delaying simple modifications, as prices keep increasing year over year.
- The emotional stress of having to deal with a loved one’s or your own injury after the initial traumatic event or stressful. You will rarely be in the right frame of mind to make the proper decisions.
Planning is the key to being able to transition through these life challenges, after all you’ve spent a lifetime creating memories in your home, wouldn’t it be better to stay there as long as you can?
