ABOUT VALERIE JURIK-HENRY, CAPS
I’m here to start something new and refreshing!
As a business consultant, national speaker on Aging (thriving) In Place, Certified Aging in Place Specialist (CAPS), author and entrepreneur – if I have learned anything it is this:
“People want to spend their life in an environment that is familiar, comfortable and manageable.”
With over 30 years of experience in housing and healthcare, I have a unique view when it comes to educating executives and various organizations in the housing industry about The Ageless Home™. I empower you with knowing the best way to engage your product in the Aging In Place (AIP) market.
It all starts with the home design.
So why aren’t we building houses that allow anyone, at any age, to function in it? There is less than 1% of our current housing inventory that is considered usable by all ages.
A few years back, I decided to look into the home building industry and talk with builders. When I approached them about creating a home design that ages with the homeowner, there was a constant response of “when a customer asks me for that type of house I’ll look into it” It was then that I started the path to The Ageless Home™
The Ageless Home™ is a house that through design and product layout, allows anyone, regardless of age or ability, to function in it independently. A house that ages with the homeowner.
You need to build it and market it, and that’s where I come in.
I help builders to sell more homes so that they have more income, impact, and industry recognition, unlike other builders who choose to remain the same. This is possible through the depth of our combined knowledge and content.
I became a consultant and speaker to help you navigate the waters, to see the importance of The Ageless Home™, to understand our aging America, and to help businesses and organizations engage in the lucrative Aging In Place market.
