What do you mean, CAPS?

I spent the greater part of last week getting Lakeville a Certified Aging in Place Specialist (CAPS) designation.  This would more aptly be named a “stay in your home” certificate.

Known as the baby boomer generation, over 10,000 people in the United States will turn 65 A DAY.  You read that right, 10,000 people a day.  As our population ages, and as we as a population continue to live longer, there understandably is a strong movement to want to stay in our own homes.  The thing is, our needs change.

This class was designed to teach about what small decisions you the home owner can make to prepare your home for easy/inexpensive accessibility in the future (if you’re remodeling anyway) or to service those who have suddenly found themselves with needs that their home does not provide.  In either situation, Lakeville Homes is now better equipped than we were a week ago, to see that you can stay in your home as long as possible.

If you have questions about how you can prepare your home for your long term living, or have a loved one who needs help modifying their home to accommodate unforeseen circumstances, please let us know how we can help.
