Yvonne Cummins recently completed the educational requirements for the CAPS (Certified Aging in Place Specialist) designation from the National Association of Home Builders. A Certified Aging in Place Specialist has been trained in the unique needs of the older adult populations, aging in place home modifications and solutions to common barriers so that people can live comfortably and safely in their homes longer. According to Yvonne, “For many years homes have been designed and constructed for the lifepsan of the building, not taking into account the lifespan of the occupants.” Yvonne’s seven years of experience in nursing home and personal care management brings a fresh perspective to the custom home design process.
