Grab Bars & Railings
Joe Norwood, a Chapel Hill-based contractor and Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS) at Manor House Renovations, helps people live and age-in-place in their homes comfortably, conveniently, independently, and safely. There may be no need to move, for a certified aging-in-place specialist may be able to show you how to stay in the home that you LOVE!
A person with the CAPS designation is a professional who has completed extensive training, testing, and certification through the National Association of Builders. They are trained to help you choose from options such as improved lighting, easy-open door handles, simple touch plumbing, slip-resistant flooring, a range of safety features, entry and exit ramps, energy-saving smart home features, kitchen renovation, bathroom renovation and grab bars, exterior even-surface walkways and low-maintenance landscaping, and automatic whole house emergency backup power providing uninterrupted power.
The individualized home evaluation process involves a professional assessment of your current home conditions using a 117-item checklist, which includes interior and exterior areas. The checklist is designed to provide a total picture of immediate and possible future needs to support aging-in-place rather than moving to a more expensive housing alternative.
