Taking Charge: New Models for Aging in Place, Designed by Seniors, for Seniors

June 14, 2018 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Ontario Age-Friendly Communities Outreach Program

Taking Charge: New models for Aging in Place, Designed by Seniors, for Seniors, is a research-through-storytelling project aimed at uncovering grassroots models of seniors’ supportive living that are emerging across Canada and the United States. It employs a lead user approach to explore initiatives that address the issues of aging in place and senior social isolation, and presents a distillation of key insights and emergent principles extracted from ethnographic site visits.

In this webinar you will hear four case studies:

  • Homesharing
  • Seniors cohousing
  • Naturally occurring retirement communities with supportive service program (NORC-SSP)
  • Virtual villages.

Each case study includes audio documentaries of user experiences, and photographic documentation of community life.

This webinar is hosted by the Ontario Age-Friendly Communities Outreach Program.
