In a pioneering new initiative to further support aging-in-place, the New York State Office for the Aging (NYSOFA) has partnered with the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and the Association on Aging in New York (AgingNY) to launch an innovative home-modification credentialing initiative aimed at bringing safety and security to older adults at home.

Through NAHB’s existing Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS) accreditation program, NYSOFA, NAHB, and AgingNY are equipping New York’s aging services providers with training and CAPS certification to work with older adults in assessing and arranging for necessary home improvements so that individuals can remain in their own homes safely as they age, reducing/preventing falls, and preventing injury as well as unnecessary or premature institutionalization.
