What is SAGECare?
SAGECare provides training and consulting on LGBT aging issues to service providers. As a division of
SAGE (Services & Advocacy for GLBT Elders), SAGECare is part of the country’s largest and oldest organization dedicated to improving the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) older adults.
Andrus on Hudson is excited to have partnered with SAGECare to obtain LGBT aging cultural competency training. Our leadership team chose the platinum level, which is the highest level of training because we believe that all individuals should feel welcome and be able to access high-quality care. Very few healthcare facilities are credentialed in this area and we saw an opportunity to further enhance our person-directed services.
“What divides us pales in comparison to what unites us."
- Edward Kennedy
Our team understands the importance of caring for an individual and meeting their personal needs. Over 85% of our entire team including management and senior leadership received this important training and are now better able to understand and acknowledge LGBT aging issues. We have elevated our commitment to diversity and inclusion and enhanced our ability to build an inclusive culture that encourages, supports, and celebrates the diverse voices of all those we serve.
