As we age, most of us prefer to stay in our own homes rather than move to an assisted living facility. Aging in Place means living in your home safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of age or ability level.
Many times simple modifications or renovations can make a home safer and allow owners to remain in their own homes. The National Association of Home Builders, in collaboration with AARP, developed the Certified Aging-In-Place Specialist (CAPS) Program to address the growing number of consumers that will soon require these home modifications.
DK Lippy Construction Company LLC is among some of the first companies in the metro Atlanta area to complete the specialized training required to become a Certified Aging in Place Specialist. We even created an Aging in place division called HomeFree Home Modification. We have a team providing evaluation, construction services that allow maturing adults to remain in their own homes for a longer period of time, living fuller, more independent and self-reliant lives.
As a CAPS company, we are able to evaluate the present needs of homeowners as well as to anticipate future concerns for those wishing to age in their own homes. We do this through a free audit resulting in a prioritized home modification plan.
