Join At Home with Growing Older (AHWGO) their first forum of the season!  Thursday, September 5,  6:00pm-8:00pm Ed Roberts Campus, Berkeley at Ashby BART Station.  This season, the focus is on connecting - with each other and with community members while expanding beyond AHWGO to include peer organizations, local experts and more resources. You are invited  to start this season strong by re-imagining the home as an ally: how can we adapt our environments to better suit us and bring us a sense of safety and delight?  Home maintenance and adaptations that address the economic, emotional and physical realities of growing older need to be recognized as components of healthy aging by homeowners, policy makers and industries.    Register on Eventbrite.
