SAGECare Platinum Certified

We understand that many lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) adults have experienced discrimination, social stigma, and prejudice. That’s why our staff has received training from the LGBT senior advocacy organization SAGE. We’re proud to have achieved the SAGECare Platinum LGBT cultural competency credential. SAGE is the country’s largest and oldest organization dedicated to improving the lives of LGBT older adults.
