Certified Aging-In-Place Specialist (CAPS)

You’ve lived in your home for a long time, but what was once a comfortable and routine-oriented environment is now difficult or even dangerous to navigate. What if simple changes could be made to these uncomfortable or hazardous parts of your home so it better accommodates you? Would that allow you to live longer or even indefinitely in the home you love? Would changes to a bathroom, kitchen, or doorway make it easier to care for a family member with certain needs or help remedy your own limited mobility?

In addition to making your home safer and improving your quality of life, Aging-In-Place modifications can be a great investment. Retirement communities are expensive, so the money spent making Aging-In-Place modifications is often offset by the overall savings that comes from extending time in the home. And as the country’s population ages and accessibility accommodations are increasingly valuable in homes, certain Aging-in-Place modifications can add significant resale value to your home.

Tops Of The Town, LLC helps people live longer in their own homes as they age. The team is led by Charlie Nichols, a licensed contractor with 37 years of experience in the remodeling and building industry, and his daughter, Liza Nichols is a licensed Occupational Therapist in the Inpatient Rehabilitation Center at Virginia Hospital Center. Together, they earned the title of Certified Aging In Place Specialists (“CAPS” - from the National Association of Home Builders). Charlie and Liza will come into your home and evaluate each room or area you wish to address.

A few of the Aging-in-Place accommodations and modifications Tops of the Town can provide include:

  • Chair Lifts
  • First Floor Living
  • Enlarged and Easier Entryways
