UCH Recertified in LGBT Aging Staff Training

SAGE SAGECare platinum LGBT cultural competency for LGBT aging service providersSAGECare LGBT Cultural Competency Training for Senior Living Providers

United Church Homes communities have been recertified in SAGECare cultural competency training for those working with the LGBT community. The program is offered through SAGE, a national advocacy and services organization that’s been looking out for LGBT older adults since 1978.

“Many LGBT older adults may be uncomfortable or fearful being open about their identity or relationships. SAGECare training is a way to communicate that your community is invested in their well-being.” — Tim R. Johnston, Ph.D., Director of National Projects at SAGE

A majority of UCH’s 1,500 staff members voluntarily participated in the training program for residential healthcare providers and others who work with and advocate for older adults. UCH and its senior living communities have been recertified annually since first earning platinum certification in 2017. Several UCH affordable housing communities have also been credentialed.

United Church Homes was the second organization in Ohio to be SAGECare certified. The first was the Alzheimer’s Association, with four of its regional offices having earned the bronze-level certification. Pilgrim Manor was the seventh organization in Michigan to be certified.
