Right at Home is Dedicated to Person Directed Care, Open to all People, and Welcoming to LGBT People and Their Allies
SAGECare is a division of SAGE, the country’s oldest and longest running organization dedicated to improving the lives of LGBT older adults. SAGECare provides lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) competency training and consulting on LGBT aging issues to service providers. Our staff at Right at Home Cedar Rapids has completed this competency training and has earned the Bronze Level credential from SageCare. We are the only home care company in Eastern Iowa that has earned this designation. It is important for caregivers and office staff to be aware of the challenges LGBT seniors have encountered throughout their lives and continue to face in today’s society. We have learned how to be sensitive to these challenges and to support our LGBT clients. LGBT seniors who need home care can feel confident in their choice of providers with Right at Home Cedar Rapids.
