Can my home grow older with me?
Yes! Whether you are 50 or 80, most homes can grow with you to meet personal needs as you age. Even small adjustments can have a profound impact in helping you to live long-term in your home, safely and comfortably.
At Home With Growing Older (AHWGO) developed Aging at Home 360 ® for people who want to age on their own terms. It helps you assess the potential of your current home, not only in accommodating the changes that come with growing older, but also in re-discovering life at home.

Aging 360 ® Workshops
Most people prefer to age in their own homes. Lack of affordable housing presents a barrier, as does the fact that homes are not often designed to accommodate the changes and transitions that are a natural part of aging. Many people want to learn how to turn their home into an ally, through making changes to their home and adjusting how they interact with and live in their homes.
AHWGO’s Aging 360 ® Workshops teach age-friendly design principles and solutions. Using experiential exercises, we invite participants to tap into their own creativity and their intimate knowledge of their own homes to brainstorm with concrete solutions that are executable, affordable and delightful. In sharing challenges and opportunities, participants not only learn from each other, but often support each other in making changes.
