What is one thing you got out of this workshop?


“Thank you for this program! I’ve had this weighing on my mind and body for years.  These specific steps and support and knowing I’m not alone are immensely helpful! Now to get off my butt and do something!  ;-)”

Aging 360 Participant – OnLok Workshop

What is one thing you got out of this workshop?


“I walked away with an understanding of why principles of delight, connection and comfort/safety are important considerations as we grow older and adapt our environments. I can’t stop thinking about them and I think it’s because the homework exercises are making my rental apartment feel like an apartment home in a more personalized, age-friendly way.”

What is one thing you got out of this workshop?


“I can see the problems as workable, not simply overwhelming, still daunting, but I’ve got new tools, new eyes, and an attitude change. Not to mention good information.”

Aging 360 Participant

Would you recommend this workshop to others?


“I would very much recommend this to my friends who are dealing with eldercare. I think caregivers should also know about their own lifestyle enhancement.”

About 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.
