Karissa Peffer, our Supervisor of Adaptive Housing Solutions, just received her CAPS certification! CAPS stands for Certified-Aging-in-Place Specialist and is for professionals in the adaptive housing field.
Karissa works closely with contractors, complex rehab specialists, and occupational therapists to make sure that ATF Medical’s home modifications are appropriate for the conditions and lifestyles of our workers’ compensation patients.
In 2020, she earned the Certified Environmental Access Consultant (C.E.A.C.) certification. Both programs deal with the legal, ethical, and safety issues as well as the construction aspects of home modifications.
Karissa uses this knowledge to see that workers’ compensation patients can function safely in their homes while maximizing their mobility and accessibility. Our goal is to equip injured workers to experience as much independence as possible, enjoy their lives, and return to work when possible.
“We’re exceptionally proud of Karissa who has strengthened her expertise by earning two certifications since joining ATF Medical in 2019,” said Erin Zablocki, CDME, Master C.E.A.C., ECHM. “We salute – and support – our associates’ efforts to pursue continuing education and certifications in their chosen field.
