Welcome to the Living In Place Institute!
This site is dedicated to education for professionals for modifying and building all homes to be accessible, comfortable and safe for everyone.
If you are a homeowner, read more on this site and then contact these unique, caring and internationally recognized experts to help you and your loved ones.
Our work is to help all professionals in design, contracting, medical and non-medical care, real estate, home inspections, financing, manufacturing, etc., learn their respective roles and responsibility, and how to work together to improve designs and products in every home.
The solution for safer homes started with understanding the principles of universal design, grew into the limited market approach of aging in place, and has now evolved into a complete approach of simply make all homes safer, "Without Talking About IT!".
As you read these pages, think of how you can help your clients help themselves, and their families and friend who visit, continue living in their home independently with dignity and be proud of their beautiful home.
Read what Certified Living In Place Professionals (CLIPP) are saying:
"This is truly one of the best things I have done for my business. Getting trained as a CLIPP (Certified Living In Place Professional) changes the way you look at design and renovation. If you are interested in "upping your game", this is the future!"

"Just signed a retainer for $140k to design and estimate a mother in law suite for someone who has a form of MS and lives with daughter and son in law. I think my CLIPP was the deciding factor."
