Common Questions

What is a certified aging-in-place specialist (CAPS)?

A Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS) is a professional who specializes in making homes more accessible and suitable for individuals as they age. They are trained to assess and modify homes to accommodate the changing needs of older adults, allowing them to live comfortably and independently in their own homes for as long as possible. CAPS professionals are knowledgeable about design principles, safety features, and technologies that can enhance the overall living environment for seniors.

Maury Hammond, the owner of Freedom Maids has earned this certification and is committed to assisting family members, contractors, and older adults across the Houston area.

What are some examples of activities of daily living (ADLs), and why are they crucial in the context of aging-in-place?

Activities of daily living (ADLs) include tasks like bathing, dressing, grooming, eating, and using the toilet. These activities are essential for maintaining independence, and CAPS modifications often focus on making these tasks easier for older adults to perform at home.

How does choosing long-term care or an assisted living facility differ from the option of aging at home with CAPS modifications?

Long-term care facilities and assisted living facilities provide a structured environment with professional care while aging at home with CAPS modifications allows older adults to remain in their residences. The latter choice often aligns with the desire for familiarity, independence, and a personalized living space tailored to their needs.
