Founder, Aging in Place Institute
Louis Tenenbaum straddles the aging, building and policy worlds. The first design/build contractor to focus his remodeling company on aging in place in the early 1990’s, Louis has over twenty five years’ experience working with families and individuals, designers and developers, healthcare, product manufacturers and community leaders on improving individual homes, products and communities for integrated aging. Louis was an expert and first instructor for the CAPS (Certified Aging in Place Specialists) program developed in partnership by AARP and NAHB (National Association of Home Builders). His white paper, “Aging in Place 2.0: Rethinking Solutions to the Home Care Challenge” published by the MetLife Mature Market Institute is a standard for Aging in Place vision. In September 2016 he received the HIVE award for building industry innovators (Housing, Innovation, Vision and Economics). Louis also founded Homes Renewed, a coalition focused on policy to update houses through public/private investment partnership by making it less expensive to remodel homes the age friendly way.
