Today, national LGBT organization SAGE (Services and Advocacy for GLBT Elders) launched its SAGECare training and accreditation system for senior care providers, awarding Lantern a Platinum credential. SAGECare Platinumrecognizes our comprehensive approach to training, ensuring all staff engage comfortably, sensitively and respectfully with older LGBT people in our community, and our commitment to strategic leadership on LGBT inclusion across the organization.

“We’re very proud of our SAGECare Platinum credential, and hope that it will give LGBT clients and staff confidence that they will be welcomed and respected in our organization. SAGECare’s support has been invaluable in developing the competency of our staff, and we look forward to continuing to work with them as we develop our LGBT-inclusive programming.”
