Dan Kliethermes of Kliethermes Homes and Remodeling recently became one of the select group of professionals nationwide to earn the Certified Aging-In-Place Specialist (CAPS) designation, identifying him as one of the industry’s top professionals with skills and knowledge specific to home modifications for accommodating clients entering the age of maturity.
The CAPS program, developed to help home remodeling professionals meet the needs of the 77 million Baby Boomers that will reach retirement age in the first years of the 21st century, was a collaborative effort by the Remodelers Council of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), the NAHB Research Center, NAHB Seniors Housing Council and the AARP.
The CAPS program equips remodelers with the skills to help retirees and older adults remain in their homes safely, independently and comfortably, regardless of income or ability level, and continue to live in a familiar environment throughout their maturing years.
In three days of coursework, remodelers discover how to meet the changing needs of their aging clientele. The curriculum covers topics such as: background on the older adult population; common barriers and solutions to aging-in-place remodeling; codes and standards; product ideas and resources; and business management.
CAPS program graduates are required to maintain their designation by attending continuing education programs and/or participating in community service projects. CAPS classes are offered through local and state home building associations and at national trade shows including NAHB’s International Builder’s Show and the Remodelers’ Show.
