Welcome to SAGE

SAGE is a collaboration of like-minded individuals with the common goal of improving physical environments for older adults.

What We Do

SAGE fosters a multi-disciplinary membership consisting of aging service providers, design professionals, regulators, residents, researchers, manufacturers, educators and students.

SAGE partners with organizations to jointly advocate for physical environments that improve quality of life for elders and that sustain resident-centered care and aging in place.

SAGE members jury design competitions, organize and present educational sessions and webinars, and conduct post-occupancy evaluations of environments for older adults, among other activities.

SAGE encourages implementation of evidence-based design research.

SAGE advocates for and participates in regulatory reform for more effective environments.
