A Certified Aging in Place Specialist – CAPS - has the perspective necessary to view a home or home improvement project from the point of view of the user who may have a wide variety of physical or mental limitations. From getting out of a vehicle and into the house, to using the bathroom, a CAPS professional can lend critical perspective to a project.
Are you a builder, remodeler, or Occupational Therapist working with a client in the Aging In Place market? Then you are aware of the need to deal with professionals who will properly specify low-threshold or barrier-free shower bases or tubs.
Chris Moline, LEED AP, CAPS is a Certified Aging in Place Specialist on the Aker team in the Maryland, Washington DC, Northern Virginia region. If low thresholds or barrier-free showers are required for shower bases or non-jetted tubs, the Aker line has what you need.
Moline is also married to a Physical Therapist and has been treated for injuries from auto accidents to skydiving and running, and is no stranger to the need to be able to move freely in the home.
Also, if you have a client looking for a jetted/whirlpool tub to aid with circulation, Pearl tubs offer jetted design like no other, inspired by therapeutic whirlpools. If you’ve ever been to physical therapy, you’ll instantly recognize the therapeutic design of a Pearl tub and the benefit of enhanced circulation.
If you live in Northern Virginia and are looking for a CAPS professional contractor, I’d suggest contacting Vince Butler of Butler Brothers at BBCbuilders.com
