What does it take to be 'at home with growing older'?

The challenges of growing older require active inquiry. AHWGO is a multi-disciplinary group of professionals who have come together to re-envision the aging experience. We present monthly events with top-notch speakers on a wide variety of topics. Use our resources to look beyond your own discipline, both for your professional work and your personal aging decisions. Take advantage of our collective experience as you create environments that support people as they age.

Susanne Stadler: Life at Home and Aging in Community

A home for growing old gives us the opportunity to stay engaged and useful, remain part of our community, and build confidence when our abilities and strengths decline.

Watch this video of AHWGO’s Executive Director, Susanne Stadler, present a preview of the OLLI Course she taught in the Fall of 2018. In this presentation, Susanne highlights the values of designing for all ages & abilities and making our environment adapt to our needs. With her superb skill set and exemplary team of co-presenters, Susanne Stadler tackles the tough issues of aging at home and in the community.

Thank you to the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at UC Berkeley for hosting the event and the course.
