Aging in Place: What’s a CAPS?

People approaching aging would prefer to stay in their own home for as long as possible. Many homes, however, are not built to accommodate the special needs that aging requires.

Most long-term care insurance policies will pay for some or all the necessary home modifications but only if the work is done by a CAPS. These people aren’t your neighborhood handy people.

CAPS are Certified Aging-In Place Specialists who are taught the technical, business management and customer service skills to work with aging clients.

CAPS are trained to properly advise their clients about the need for grab bars, walk-in showers, ramps, special lighting, and whatever safety measures might be needed.

Long Term Care Insurance policies will cover this cost because aging in place is usually less costly than assisted living or nursing homes.
