Architect and pioneer of senior cohousing in North America, Charles Durrett (McCamant & Durrett Architects) will host Study Group 1 Aging Successfully (SG1) Online Facilitator Training online this fall. The Training is in response to the failure of aging services (especially in housing) to respond effectively to a growing trend in older adults. This population desires more independence and control of their elderhood. The failure of these services results is too many of these capable seniors move to assisted living before their time—up to 40%, based on recent studies—simply because they lack access to services. The SG1 Facilitator Training is for anyone motivated to be part of a solution in the current senior housing crisis in the U.S. and around the world.
The SG1 Facilitator Training offers experiential learning on aging issues and demonstrates the logistics of creating a supportive housing community. Limited to 20 people, the course allows for one-on-one dialogue and small group exercises, given at a pace tailored to each and every one involved. Participants will learn how to organize and motivate senior groups to take an active role in their housing choices.
BECOME A KEY FACILITATOR IN INSPIRING AND EMPOWERING SENIORS TO:
Age in place successfully.
Understand the economics of senior living choices.
Take charge of co-care, co-healing, and outside assistance.
Strengthen the bond between body and soul, individual and community.
Appreciate the interlocking roles of community life and quality of life.
Work effectively to achieve common goals.
Create a meaningful living legacy that transcends the generations.
If you are interested in facilitating a change in attitude and seeing proactive results in your community, this is your chance. In our years of experience, we have found that the more trained SG1 facilitators there are in one area, the more momentum and support each has to create senior cohousing for themselves and others. In the vein of creating community, the training is about creating a web of resources for everyone to take advantage of.
