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

Thursday, June 14, 2018 from 1-2 PM EDT. During this webinar, Jen Recknagel will present on 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. Register here.

In this webinar you will hear four case studies:

  1. Homesharing
  2. Seniors cohousing
  3. Naturally occurring retirement communities with supportive service program (NORC-SSP)
  4. Virtual villages.

Each case study includes audio documentaries of user experiences, and photographic documentation of community life. A resource package will be provided to participants following the event.
