Aging In Place

Certified Aging in Place Specialists (CAPS) – Elder Remodeling Services: Remodeling that keeps seniors in their own home.

Stay in the Home You Love!

As a Certified Aging in Place Specialist* (CAPS), Dr. Fix-It provides Home Remodeling and Home Improvement for seniors and their families. We make basic home design modifications to greatly benefit the independent living needs of an aging population. Our affordable nursing home diversion program helps prevent elderly from falling in their own home.

From heavy-duty cleaning to installing the latest in adaptive equipment, we help seniors remain in the home they love. Changes can make it easier to carry out daily activities, such as showering, cooking or climbing stairs, and can make the home a safer place to live.

Independent living in your own home:

  • Grab Bars – provide necessary support around the toilet, in the shower or tub, and at the sink
