‘At Home, On Air’

Listen to our latest episode as we discuss ‘The Body as Home: Exploring the Experience of Aging’ with Joe Goode, a globally acclaimed choreographer, writer and the artistic director of the Joe Goode Performance Group.

In this conversation with Joe Goode, we discuss how, through his work, Joe is challenging the predominant narratives of aging and the fearfulness that accompanies the inevitable demise of the physical body. Joe shares insights about his latest performance, As We Go, as well as his approach to movement as we age. Listen & explore along with us as we delve further into the topic of our own personal & universal aging experiences.

The desire to live/stay in your own home is always a priority.

Very powerful to hear personal stories — loved all the panelists. They offered complimentary perspectives.

When I first started going, I came for my parents. Now that I'm 70, I'm interested in what can benefit me, and my friends.

It’s a great organization for learning things you can do to help yourself or help others.

AHWGO brings people together to talk about things that people aren't talking about in such an interdisciplinary way….It's something that's different. You've got a real pearl there.

Cary Sweeney, Executive Director, University of California, Berkeley Retirement Center

Everyone needs the information in AHWGO’s Aging 360 curriculum. When else can you have access to an architect, an industrial designer, and a social worker all at once?

Patti Spaniak, SF Community Living Campaign

The Aging 360 workshop makes living in your house better and more important. As a result of COVID, people’s homes are now their world so it’s even more vital.

Marie Jobling, Executive Director, SF Community Living Campaign

Among others inputs, [I learned] that age can be the opportunity to strengthen our positions, with calm and patience.

The framework is fabulous. Understanding 'aging as an extreme sport' and the 'delight factor' are, themselves, worth more than the price of admission

How to Best Age in Place: Creating a Safe and Delightful Home

Listen to the Conversation!

What does it take to be

at home with growing older?


We thrive when we are connected.

We need
age-supportive homes.

We deserve
design excellence
no matter what age.

Products for older adults are typically poorly executed and have a delight factor of ‘zero’.


We are continuing to implement a full program of tools and interventions to address the needs of our society & of individuals who are at home and growing older. And we are glad you are a part of our learning community of professionals & individuals building resources, making connections and reshaping our approach toward aging.
