'What is aging-in-place? In plain English, aging-in-place means living in one’s home safely, independently and comfortably, regardless of age, income or ability level. It means the pleasure of remaining in a familiar environment throughout one’s maturing years, and the ability to enjoy the familiar daily rituals and the special events that enrich all our lives. It means the reassurance of being able to call a house a home for a lifetime.'
'There's been a growing demand for remodeling as a means to enhance Americans' independence as they choose to remain in their homes into their retirement years," explained Leon Harper, who represents AARP. "While there's a growing need, there's also been a growing fear, as a result of the unfortunate work of a few unscrupulous contractors. This program represents a welcome opportunity for us to help our members identify the good guys, the professionals they can hire with confidence."' - NAHB
Lead Safe Renovator Certification
Wisconsin's Lead-Safe Renovation Rule went into effect on April 22, 2010. The rule is intended to ensure that persons who perform renovation, lead hazard reduction or lead investigation activities do so safely to prevent exposure of building occupants to hazardous levels of lead. This is accomplished by requiring an individual to be trained and certified before the individual performs or supervises renovations.
Lead exposure in young children can cause reduced IQ and attention span, learning disabilities, developmental delays, and a range of other health and behavioral effects. Most exposures occur in homes or daycares built before 1978 from chipping and peeling lead-based paint and the lead-tainted dust it creates or where lead hazards have been created through renovation done without using lead-safe work practices. Prevention of lead poisoning can be accomplished by eliminating lead-based paint hazards before children are exposed.
