As baby boomers age, many Americans are faced with tricky decisions about where, and how, to live. With more people opting to stay in their homes, builders are turning to aging-in-place design to accommodate clients.
During NAHB’s webinar Creating a Client Assessment Procedure for Aging in Place
, scheduled for Thursday, Aug. 15, 2-3 p.m. ET,
two case studies will be presented focused on older adults with progressive health conditions. The clients' children and their families will be relocating to care for their parents.
Master Instructor Wanda Gozdz will discuss whom aging-in-place professionals need to consult to identify the challenges a multi-generational household faces, and what approach can be used to create short- and long-term solutions.
Gozdz will teach participants how to:
- Conduct a thorough interview – using checklists – of a client who has a progressive condition.
- Identify the problems that limit a person's ability to function independently.
- Design solutions that provide security, safety, ease of use and beauty.
Participants can earn 1.0 hours of continuing education credits for the following 12 designations: CAPS, CGA, CGB, CGP, CGR, CMP, CSP, GMB, GMR, Master CGP, Master CSP, and MIRM.
Register today. Registration is open until 3 p.m. ET (12 p.m. PT) on Wednesday, Aug. 14

The webinar is the last in the NAHB Master Instructor Webinar series
