Introducing Silver Spaces App for senior home assessment

Davenport, Iowa – October 28, 2015 – The newly released Silver Spaces™  mobile app offers a simple IOS application for seniors, their families, health professionals, remodelers, builders, service providers and those who care about and for seniors.  Safety and security in the home becomes a valid concern as the population ages and this app offers a room by room checklist, both interior and exterior, that defines what changes could be made to make it more resident-friendly.

There is no doubt that world-wide, safety is a concern as anyone ages.  This app tackles that issue head on by asking targeted questions that cover the interior and exterior, one room or a whole house and are easily answered by moving a yes/no bar.  One can upload photos and notes all while doing the evaluation.  In addition, there is a rationale provided for each question so that the user knows why that question is important.  The user can do one or more home evaluations, save them, upload a logo (if a business) and capture demographics information for later use.

When the assessment is complete, a report is created and the user can view, edit, delete, print or email it.  This report produces a checklist that one can utilize to make simple changes or alterations to a home, or undertake complex upgrades or remodeling.  As a fringe benefit, the app includes a downloadable, detailed functional assessment that assists in identifying any physical, financial, transportation, mobility or other issues the resident may have that could impact the decision to remain in the home. 

Christine Fortenberry, CEO of FSCAtlanta, Atlanta, Georgia and the Chairperson of the Certified Aging in Place Specialist (CAPS) designation program for the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), has said, “Both new and seasoned CAPS graduates can benefit tremendously from this app. Fortenberry also sees Silver Spaces as a tool that can serve as a “common thread” among the multiple people who may be working with an aging home owner. The app can make it easier for several people – including various caregivers and health therapists, as well as the remodeler – to work from a single assessment.”

This app fills a huge void and has created a specific niche in providing a sound, reliable evaluation tool that will help CAPS and other professionals cover all aspects of aging in place, of which safety and security are primary.”

Silver Spaces is available worldwide for $5.99 in the U.S. and is priced accordingly in other regions.  Release to the Android market is set for January, 2016 and the professional tablet version, Silver Spaces Pro, has a spring, 2016 release date.  Timing for this app couldn’t be more perfect as the tsunami of adults try to find the most appropriate housing as they age.

The Silver Spaces app was developed by CAVU Media, a Morristown, NJ based web and mobile development company founded in 2008.
