Aging In Place Certified Specialists (CAPS)
Aging-in-Place means remaining in one’s home safely, independently and comfortably, regardless of age, income or ability level. It means the pleasure of living in a familiar environment throughout one’s maturing years and the ability to enjoy the familiar daily rituals and the special events that enrich all our lives. It means being able to call a house a “home” for a lifetime. All Phase Remodeling is experienced in designing and building environments that are more accessible to all people, regardless of age, size or physical abilities.
The Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS) designation was developed by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Remodelors™ Council, in collaboration with the AARP, NAHB Research Center and NAHB Seniors Housing Council. This program was developed to provide professionals training that would enable them to accommodate the needs of people over the age of 50, as well as the knowledge they would need to modify their homes for aging in place.
The program focuses specifically on the customer service skills, technical information and business management training needed to properly serve the needs of older adults. In layman’s terms, a CAPS certified professional has been trained on the unique needs of seniors, modifying homes so someone can live there longer as they age and addressing the most common barriers in a home.
If you are concerned about making your home “aging ready”, finding a CAPS certified professional is your best first step to making sure your future needs are addressed during your remodeling project.
Why You Should Choose a Certified Aging in Place Specialist
Choosing a CAPS professional is always the right choice for an aging in place remodeling project or new home construction for those seniors building the home they want to age in. These professionals have taken part in a training and certification process through the National Association of Home Builders which prepares them to anticipate and meet the needs of older people.
Through the use of universal design principles, CAPS professionals can work with you to create a safe, comfortable and more independent life in your home; both now and for the future. But, it doesn’t stop with addressing design. CAPS professionals are trained in common remodeling projects and costs, accessibility issues, product recommendations, codes and standards, and the process and resources needed to provide a complete aging in place solution.
When you use the services of a Certified Aging in Place Specialist, you can rest assured that this person has been reliably instructed on how to craft solutions that meet the needs of seniors. Click here for more information from the National Association of Home Builders.

Thank you for a job well done – we love our remodel!
Your work is, as always, the best! Thanks so much for solving our old house problems. Please send me some of your business cards so I can pass them around.
We couldn’t be more pleased with our experience with All Phase Remodeling. We met Lyle Whittaker, its president, at the 2016 Home and Garden Show, and our gut reaction was that he seemed honest and straight forward. We were not disappointed. Everyone connected to All Phase with whom we interacted was pleasant and professional at all times. The estimate was clear and detailed. A significantly off-plumb wall in our 1950-built house was expertly and creatively dealt with, and all the workmanship was meticulous. The work area was cleaned up at the end of every workday, and all parts of the project were completed on schedule. Best of all, the entire remodel came in on budget, and the results met our highest expectations. We would, without reservations, recommend All Phase to anyone contemplating a home renovation or remodel.
We are thrilled with how the windows look: from the style, to the carpentry, to the painting (even the discrete way you displayed your sign in the front yard – nice touch). We are also impressed with the professionalism and respect that all the men displayed while working here. Thanks for a job well done! Given that this is an old house, we’ll be calling you again for future projects. In the meantime we’ll spread the word about what a great company you are!
We just want to thank you for our beautiful new kitchen! I can’t believe that it finally happened. We love the space and the counter for drawing, painting, and cookie making. Thank you also for being so patient with me and my changes. We are very happy with all the excellent work you did!
Thanks for the care you’ve taken to date to meet my needs. I am certain I’ve made the right choice to use your company.
All Phase Remodeling, Inc. (APR), has been intimately involved in updating my home (built in 1959) for a number of years. Significant projects include enclosing the screened-in porch; gutting and renovating the kitchen and main bathroom; building a new deck; and installing quartz countertops, tile back splashes, stone sinks, and new faucets in the kitchen. APR identifies all of the components of a project and prepares a proposal based on those components, so there are no “surprises” as the project progresses. APR schedules its employees and subcontractors with the goal of completing a project on time. I have always been very comfortable having APR’s employees and subcontractors in my home, whether or not I am there with them. I recommend APR without reservation.
Recently All Phase Remodeling totally remodeled our kitchen. It was stuck in the 1980’s and needed a complete updating. Heather and her crew were more than up to the task. She walked us thorough each phase of the remodel beforehand, provided us with expert advice and along every step of the way made sure we were comfortable and happy with every action they took.All Phase and their team, particularly Phil and Mike did a remarkable job transforming our kitchen into a contemporary design that made our kitchen our favorite room in our home.Every one was thorough in performing their work and made certain we knew each next step of the process. Their attention to detail was precise and they made us feel the finish product was just as important to them as it was for us.My wife and I wouldn’t hesitate to use All Phase with our next remodeling project and would strongly recommend them to our family, friends and anyone else looking for a superior company they can rely on.
We are writing to let you know how pleased we are with our newly finished basement! We have been very satisfied with the entire project — the actual building process and the end results. We found you and your staff easy to work with and always willing and able to answer our questions. We also appreciated how it was handled when things requiring further decisions came up during the building process. We especially appreciated how careful your staff was to protect the rest of our home during the work, and how they cleaned up and checked up after any sub-contractors. We felt very comfortable with them in our home including when our children were home without us. We have shown our new basement to several people, and they all think it’s beautiful! We have also given your name to several people. We recently commented to each other how glad we are that we decided to go ahead with the project, and that we chose All Phase.
Thanks for the photos. I have been very happy with both the remodeling process and the result. I will certainly think of you when I am ready to tackle the next big project.
