At Home With Growing Older (AHWGO)
At Home With Growing Old(er), AHWGO, is a nonprofit network that brings together professionals, academics, and activists to explore what it takes to provide services, infrastructure, and homes that meet the needs and desires of an aging population.
We are part of a growing movement that promotes integrated solutions, especially those focusing on the home and its context, rather than an institutional environment, as the major contributor to healthy aging.
AHWGO sponsors monthly events, offers workshops and consultations for being “at home with growing older”. We serve individuals, organizations, corporations, cities and neighborhoods.
AHWGO was founded in 2009 by an architect and social worker and started as an interdisciplinary discussion group to gather professionals, thinkers, activists, and academics interested in more deeply considering the tremendous challenge to “growing old” with more information, awareness, and pro-active inquiry.
What Does It Take To Be 'At Home With Growing Older'?
The challenges of growing older require active inquiry. AHWGO is a group of multi-disciplinary 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.
