Mission of SAGE

To promote collaboration among aging services providers, design professionals, regulators, residents, researchers, manufacturers, educators, students and others interested in providing innovative and appropriate environments for older adults.

To achieve this mission, SAGE: 

  • Provides a nexus for collaboration among all disciplines involved in the development, operation, and regulation of settings for older adults. 
  • Offers educational forums that feature current research and best practices for the design of living environments.
  • Evaluates senior living environments based on SAGE’s design principles and shares results through conferences and publications.
  • Promotes regulatory change and research that supports resident-centered care.
