SAGE Initiatives

SAGE champions its core values of partnership, advocacy, research, and education through its key initiatives.

Post-Occupancy Evaluations

Since 1999, multidisciplinary SAGE teams have conducted post-occupancy evaluations of senior-living environments and shared their findings at the annual Environments for Aging Conference, on SAGE webinars, and via white papers.

Intergenerational Task Force

The joint SAGE, AIA Design for Aging, and Center for Health Design Intergenerational Task Force created a "roadmap" checklist of various types of intergenerational elements and survey data on which types of elements are preferred or work best. More exciting work coming from the task force!
