Who We Are

Who We Are

We are Senior Home Remodeling and Aging in Place Experts


Mission Statement:

Aging in Place (AIP) serves the needs of our aging and disabled population by providing home modification to help individuals remain in their current home. We also provide information to assist you in the planning process, and our website is dedicated to creating a supportive environment for this time of life transition for both individuals and their families.

While the primary services that AIP provides are related to remodeling and home modification, there is more to successfully aging in place than just altering your living environment. Here at AIP, our objectives are to help inform you about the options you have to remain in your home, as well as providing information on local services, people, and products than can assist in this process.


We are CSA Members

Today’s aging population is growing exponentially – and the need for qualified professionals to meet the multi-faceted needs of older adults and their families is greater than ever. Certified Senior Advisor (CSA) is the leading certification designation for professionals seeking to supplement their knowledge.  Earning the CSA certification requires individuals to pass a rigorous exam, uphold the highest ethical standards, and to complete continuing education requirements.

What makes a Certified Senior Advisor exceptional, is their application of the knowledge gained through the CSA “Working with Seniors” course, combined with their professional experience. CSAs are committed to ethical behavior to benefit senior clients and their families. A CSA builds their health, social, legal and financial knowledge regarding the challenges of aging through continuing education. They form a strong network of local strategic partnerships, and act in concert on behalf of the seniors they serve, using a unified approach which demonstrates the benefit to the client of holding the CSA certification.
