Liollio Health & Wellness Champion, Michael Edwards, and Alison Dawson, AIA, presented Reframing Ageism:  Design to Re-Vitalize Community & Empower Seniors at the 2019 Environments for Aging Conference in Salt Lake City, Utah from April 7 – 10.  Often overlooked or unknowingly referenced to older adults, ageism is a discriminatory stereotyping against people on the basis of their age and can often have harmful effects on the health of older adults. Michael and Alison shared Liollio’s community design process employed for the Louis Waring, Jr. Senior Center as case study. Through listening, discovery and translation, the team designed the new facility to reflect the wishes of the older adult community in hopes to defy the ageist stereotype of what a Senior Center is “expected” to be. The new Senior Center is a hub of community engagement empowering our older adults to make their voices heard.  Just as the historical character of Charleston speaks to every visitor, the history, stories, and active voice of our aging population is vital.
