At Home With Growing Older’s Aging 360™
At Home With Growing Older’s (AHWGO) Aging 360™ is a workshop for groups and individuals who want to grow old in their home that teaches participants to see their home as a partner in wellbeing and empower them to adapt their home not only with safety, but also delight in mind. Aging 360™ was developed by an architect, industrial designer, and social worker.
Our homes are ‘senior homes.’ Ninety eight percent of aging adults prefer to grow old in a private home while others do not have the option to move into a community designed especially for older adults. Growing old in one’s home means staying engaged in the community across generations and having the opportunity to make personal lifestyle choices for the later phases of life. While most people are interested in aging at home, they are often discouraged from planning ahead by a narrow perspective of age-friendly design.
Aging 360™ empowers participants to plan ahead with a new perspective and approach to age-friendly design, one that is focused on the uniqueness of a person’s needs that goes beyond the standards of design for accessibility. At Home With Growing Older partners with nonprofits and for profit service organizations to bring Aging 360™ to their members. We tailor Aging 360™ to targeted audiences such as addressing specific socio-economic backgrounds and aligning with other organization’s programming.
Some of our clients include: Community Living Campaign, Felton Institute, Rebuilding Together SF, UCSF as part of Age Self Care Project with Louise Aronson, and Wetherby Asset Management.
