According to the TN Disability Coalition (TDC), in 2019, TN legislation was passed directing the Bureau of TennCare to establish a program to identify child enrollees in TennCare who are likely to be eligible for federal supplemental security income due to disability upon reaching 18 years of age. This program must also provide counseling and enrollment assistance to the child and their parent or guardian to prevent a gap in TennCare eligibility upon the child reaching 18 years of age. CAPS consultants can provide help to disabled individuals who have mobility issues in their home.

Richard Acree is a Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS) offering services as a building inspector, planner and project monitor for home modifications to allow disabled individuals to live in their homes longer. The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), in collaboration with AARP and other experts, developed the CAPS designation, which is achieved through training and testing during a multicourse educational program. The NAHB has been approved as a provider of American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) training for Marketing & Communicating with the Aging In Place Client (CAPS I), Design Concepts for Livable Homes and Aging In Place (CAPS II) and Details & Solutions for Livable Homes and Aging In Place (CAPS III) courses.

As a CAPS consultant, Richard serves as a building inspector, planner, and project monitor. Richard combines his CAPS certificate with his ADAC certification, years of experience as a home and commercial building inspector, and his degree in engineering to offer a unique combination to develop plans for home modifications for people with mobility issues. ADAC is the American’s with Disabilities Act Coordinator certification required by the US Department of Justice for most government organizations.
