The Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS) Program was developed by AARP and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) to assist consumers in making their homes usable for a lifetime—regardless of their age, size, or functional ability.
As building professionals with an interior design background, Wagner Design & Construction understands:
•Housing-related features that present challenges to older adults who have incurred aging-related frailties or other impairments and younger-aged people with disabilities, which limit or prevent their ability to successfully negotiate their living environment and which limit or prevent their ability to continue living where they are
•How a traditionally designed home is not built to address the normal variation in size and functional ability typically seen among any home's family members
•How universal design features and home modifications enable people
to continue living independently in their homes for much longer periods of time and, often, throughout their lifetimes
•Common remodeling projects,
•Solutions to common environmental barriers.
When I am old, I shall . . . stay home.
