In this day and age, people are working and being productive well past their “retirement age”. People in their 60s, 70s and even 80s have a whole lifetime of experience to offer employers or non-profits. Their work ethic is excellent and they make reliable employees. More important is that people who have worked a lifetime have so much experience to share and can be amazing assets. Many people finally get to do the things they really want to do such as tutoring kids, helping at the Animal League, creating Community Gardens, etc. and are very valuable to the community.
So, if you are getting over the age of 60, you want to ensure that you will be able to continue to contribute in the way you want and live the way you want because you are a valuable member of the community. Of course, taking care of your health through nutrition and exercise is extremely important but what about safety in the home? One accident could set you back and make doing all the things you want to do impossible.
That is where we come in. We are certified aging in place specialists or CAPS for short. This certification means that the contractor has been taught the strategies and techniques for designing and building aesthetically enriching, barrier-free living environments. The CAPS program goes beyond design to address the codes and standards, common remodeling expenditures and projects, product ideas, and resources needed to provide comprehensive and practical aging-in-place solutions. CAPS graduates pledge to uphold a code of ethics and are required to maintain their designation by attending continuing education programs and participating in community service.
Slipping and/or falling in the bathroom is not exclusive to people over 60. Children and adults of all ages have had the circumstance to “almost fall” or “catch themselves” or fall in the tub. Unfortunately, falls are not as easily recuperated from as we get older and may create much inconvenience and loss of productive time.
