Home modifications can help you stay in your own home. There are different types of modifications that can help ensure safety and allow for more independence in your daily living activities. Modifications can range from simply updating your lighting to removing rugs to installing ramps or grab bars to investing in a stairlift.
The National Association of Home Builders has a directory of professionals with home building designations. The Certified Aging in Place Specialist (CAPS) designation lists home remodelers with specialized training in Aging-in-Place design. Make sure to click “CAPS” in the designation filer to find contractors with this specialty. You can also search by state and city.
