The Eldership Dinner Co-Hosted by EBALDC & SPUR Co-Presented by The Center for Elders’ Independence Date: January 24, 2018 Time: 6pm – 8pm Location: SPUR Oakland, 1544 Broadway, Oakland CA 94612 Cost: FREE, RSVP Requested. [Updated Jan 25, 2018: This event has passed] You’re invited to a fun & friendly discussion about aging! We all do it (age), but how do we really feel about it? It’s a tough topic for lots of adults. Let’s talk it out over dinner and entertainment; with friends! By 2030, one in five Alameda County residents will be older than 65, and by 2050 the county will have nearly 100,000 residents over the age of 85. This demographic growth represents a profound shift, and one that requires revisiting how we design our cities and systems. Join us for dinner and an open discussion about our own perceptions on aging and what infrastructure, political will and policies are needed to give older adults the opportunity to age in place. Co-presented by the Center for Elders’ Independence, East Bay’s Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly. Guided Discussion Led by […]

From Aging to Eldership Video

May 26, 2017 | Nader Shabahangi

This presentation was given at a recent dinner hosted by the Center for Elder Independence and the Fund for Elder’s Independence. This video, from Nader’s recent eldership presentation at CEI, is about changing our perception of aging, reframing the conversation from about getting old to getting mature and opening ourselves up to the concept of Elder as a role and engaging in Eldership practices. Elders of any age can practice the Eldership values of giving back, mentorship and providing guidance to their communities. Eldership Dinner w/ Dr Nader Shabahangi Presentation for the Center for Elders’ Independence(CEI) on exploring our perceptions about aging and eldership. As many a philosopher and sage have pointed out, what is nearest is often the hardest to see. Particularly in our so-called adult life, it is seldom a simple matter to take a step back and evaluate how we are living. How often do we reflect on whether our ways of living are really our choice or are instead heaped on us by external influences, ranging between mainstream values, education, family, social, […]

Thursday, March 9, 2017  6:00PM – 8:00PM Betti Ono Gallery  1427 Broadway Oakland, CA 94612 Guest Speaker: Nader Shabahangi, PhD  Renowned aging and elder care expert CEO/Founder of AgeSong Senior Living Communities Eldership Dinner Presentation: As many a philosopher and sage have pointed out, what is nearest is often the hardest to see. Particularly in our so-called adult life, it is seldom a simple matter to take a step back and evaluate how we are living. How often do we reflect on whether our ways of living are really our choice or are instead heaped on us by external influences, ranging between mainstream values, education, family, social, and cultural norms? Do these resonate with our own inner inklings and desires? Are we simply following the herd? These questions make sense when we can see available alternatives. […]
