Study Group 1 Aging Successfully Online Facilitator Training @ Online
Oct 10 @ 9:30 am – Dec 12 @ 12:30 pm
Study Group 1 Aging Successfully Online Facilitator Training @ Online | Chanute | Kansas | United States

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.

This training will run for 10 weeks, with weekly meetings every Wednesday, 9:30 AM – 12:30 PM, Pacific Standard Time. Cost is $600 until September 1, then $700 after. Participants will receive coaching from Durrett on how to organize senior groups and gain essential tools to launch senior cohousing in their area. No prior knowledge of cohousing is required. Sign up by visiting www.cohousingco.com

Contact Lindy Sexton at 530-265-9980; lindy.sexton@cohousingco.com, for more information or to schedule an interview with Mr. Durrett.
