Certified Aging in Place Specialists in Indianapolis

Create the perfect home environment for a loved one in Greenwood, IN

CAPS (Certified Aging in Place Specialist)  is a designation earned through the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) by a testing and graduation process.  It promotes smart design concepts to enable older, maturing adults to age in their homes.

The concept of “Aging in Place” is not just for older homeowners or those with ambulatory issues. It is equally appropriate for all age groups and is usually introduced during most design phases in subtle ways. Making a new master bedroom or bathroom door just a little wider if the space permits is very economical and can simply be a nicer  more comfortable way to move through a home, regardless of the owner’s age or health.

Many of the suggested design elements which are helpful to older owners or owners who have mobility issues are also very comforting to any age, like better lighting, more open floor plans with larger spaces in bathrooms, hallways and other areas involving reach. These concepts are easily adapted to a remodeling project and simply make great designs.

Gettum Associates is proud to be able to offer this concept as a regular part of its design process.
