Trading Ages

Trading Ages provides participants a unique perspective on aging.

The growth of the older adult population is impacting communities and families. It is also transforming the way organizations conduct business and deliver services. This growth presents a unique challenge to understanding the needs, experiences and perspectives of older adults. In each Trading Ages workshop, participants experience, firsthand, age-related conditions such as hearing loss, vision changes, and more through role-play or simulations. Through these simulations and education, participants actively encounter the physical, social and emotional aspects of aging.

“It was definitely eye opening. I honestly had no idea my actions could have impacted the lives of other people. I will definitely take this to heart and will start the change within myself. I think everybody needs to take this course.”
