"Meet The New CAPS Graduates"

Today, five professionals from around the country completed the coursework (3 days) for the Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist ("CAPS") designation program offered through the National Association of Home Builders in collaboration with AARP.

The courses, offered several times a year in the West Palm Beach, Florida area by Steve Hoffacker, CAPS, cover "Marketing and Communication Strategies for Aging and Accessibility" ("CAPS I"), "Design/Build Solutions for Aging and Accessibility" ("CAPS II"), and "Business Management for Building Professionals" ("BMBP/CAPS III").

The courses typically are attended by remodeling contractors, occupational therapists, architects, designers, durable medical equipment suppliers (DME), and related professions from around North America. This set of classes graduated the following (from the photo below, seated left-to-right) Jamie Casey OTR/L (Middleton, NY) and Sara Story OTR/L (Louisville, KY), (standing, left-to-right) remodeler Missy Escribano (Lutz, FL), remodeler Heather Miconi (Pompano, FL), and.general contractor Ryan Stephens (Dallas TX).
