LIPI is a Denver, Co.-based organization devoted to increasing knowledge and awareness for professionals and other influencers about increased safety and accessibility in all homes. It has created accessibility and safety assessment tools and certifies remodelers in best practices for all designs—a philosophy that stretches beyond concerns for the aged to encompass ways that enable current and future occupants continue to live in place comfortably and safely regardless of their current or future age or needs. The institute offers courses that culminate in its Certified Living in Place Professional (CLIPP) designation.
