Creating a safe, livable and lifelong home suitable for anyone, regardless of age or physical ability.
Plan For The Future Today To Help You Live The Life You Want Tomorrow.
If you are like many Canadians, you want to Age in Place in your own home and community. Aging in place means having the health and social supports and services you need to live safely and independently in your home or your community for as long as you wish and are able.
Planning Can Help You Achieve This Goal.
The earlier you start planning, the more prepared you will be to respond to changes that may occur as you age such as changes in your health, mobility or social connections. To successfully plan ahead, you need to start thinking about how you want to live as you age and what steps you need to take to achieve that lifestyle.
When planning, you should also consider the unexpected. This includes planning for what you would do if you had a sudden onset of a chronic illness, developed a disability or had a change in resources. Making choices now will give you greater control over your independence, quality of life and dignity.

Certified Age in Place Specialist (CAPS)
The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), in collaboration with AARP and other experts, developed the Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS) designation, which is achieved through training and testing during a multi-course educational program.
A Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist understands the unique needs of the older adult population and is knowledgeable about aging-in-place home modifications, common remodeling projects and solutions to common barriers. CAPS designers are often re-modelers, but designers, Occupation Therapists (OT), architects and others frequently achieve this designation as well.
