Post-Occupancy Evaluations

Since 1999, SAGE has conducted post-occupancy evaluations (POE) from coast to coast. The POE team spends a day looking at the host building or community setting from a multidisciplinary point of view.

The one-day evaluation involves looking at the setting through the lens of SAGE principles, and includes interviews with all levels of staff, residents, and family members to get to the heart of what is working and what needs improvement to help older adults be in the community longer and feel more comfortable.

Learn more about how the POE is conducted.


The 2018 SAGE POE was conducted at Cottage at Cypress Cove Memory and Dementia Care Households in Fort Meyers, Fla., which feature a unique circadian lighting system, thoughtful spatial configuration, and access to pleasant outdoor spaces.
