Why wait to obtain your CAPS certification? Get it in just three days. Regardless of your level of professional or practical experience with aging in place issues, Steve notes that most people who attend the CAPS and related classes he offers have some type of personal connection with aging in place issues that involved a parent, child, sibling, or other family members so there already is a knowledge base present.
Steve’s educational mission is simple and direct: equip you to serve your aging in place clients. We provide training courses, consulting, and individual coaching sessions to help you envision and create solutions that allow people to remain living safely, comfortably, and independently in their homes, as they age in place.
There are so many opportunities available to help people age in place effectively, including universal design and visibility approaches, and Steve will help you navigate the many possibilities open to you. This is true for general contractors, builders, remodelers, renovators, handymen, trade contractors of various types, occupational or physical therapists and assistants, durable medical equipment and assistive technology suppliers, equipment specialists and installers, interior designers and decorators, space planners, architects, building designers, nurses, physicians, case managers, discharge planners, social workers, building material manufacturers and sales representatives, home inspectors, real estate sales professionals, attorneys, insurance agents and adjusters, non-profit organizations, government agencies, home health workers, financial planners, lenders, and so many other professionals.
