Mary Haselow, Interior Designer and owner of Island Shades , is now one of the select group of professionals nationwide to earn the Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS) designation, identifying her as a Certified Aging in Place Specialist with the skills and knowledge necessary to plan and design home modifications to meet the unique needs of the older population, disabled owners or their visitors.
The National Association of Home Builders, in partnership with the AARP and NAHB Research Center, created the CAPS program, which includes training and education on the technical, business management and customer service skills essential to compete in the fastest-growing segment of the residential remodeling industry — home modifications for aging-in-place. CAPS graduates include remodelers, builders, designers, architects and others who help homeowners remain in their homes safely, independently and comfortably as they age.
Mary has a Bachelors Degree in Interior Design from the University of Houston and more than 25 years of experience in Interior Design, Space Planning and Kitchen and Bath Design. Mary has a passion to help older adults enjoy living independently in the comfort of their own homes.
She specializes in Home Assessments, Design and Planning for Aging in Place and is available for appointments in all of San Juan County.
