Certified Aging in Place Specialists

The Certified Aging in Place Specialist (CAPS) designation was developed by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Remodelors™ Council, in collaboration with the AARP, NAHB Research Center and NAHB Seniors Housing Council.

This program was developed to provide professional training that would enable them to accommodate the needs of people over the age of 50, as well as the knowledge they would need to modify their homes for aging in place.

To receive the designation, a person must go through specialized training on working how to modify a home for aging in place and working with older adults.
