Today's aging population is growing faster than any other time. In the US alone 10,000 people a day are turning 65. We all need to be proactive about our health and our future. When looking to the future more and more people are choosing to remodel a existing home than to move to an assisted living home. When choosing a contractor for the remodel, make sure you find one who is certified in CAPS (certified aging-in-place specialist.) The CAPS program, which was launched in 2002, teaches the technical, business management and customer-service skills essential for serving the fast-growing segment of the senior residential remodeling industry.
Remember, always check out who you are hiring to come into your home and do work. Call others they have done work for. Doing this task now will save you time and money in the long run.
