This position paper contributes to the HCI agenda on aging with a focus on novel design methods and interactive systems emphasizing personhood through body-centric and sensory stimulation approaches. It presents three case studies focusing on innovative technologies for cuing autobiographical memories in old age, supporting stimulation needs in dementia in the Western context, and for supporting weaving craft practices in developing context. We conclude with three design principles highlighting craft practices, bodily involvement, and personhood that can be seen from the lens of the individualist-collectivist cultures.
