Sage refers to a person of great wisdom and insight. So it's a fitting name for a company established by three people with more than 60 years combined experience in senior, independent, and assisted living community management. Kelly Cook Andress, Dick Kendall, and Gunnar Plake left top positions in the corporate world to create Sage Senior Living as an alternative to the institutionalized ownership and management of senior housing facilities by large, investor-driven firms.
Sage focuses instead on personal attention, bringing the highest possible quality of senior living directly to residents in small, exclusive retirement communities‹places where residents can speak directly to one of the Sage partners and know that their needs and wishes will be heard and acted upon. It is this strong and immediate connection that gives Kelly, Dick, and Gunnar a deep sense of personal satisfaction, and that's why they say Sage is "Big enough to count on, small enough to care."
Sage is also an herb, a natural flavor enhancer. Sage Senior Living is committed to enhancing the lives of America's dynamic population of seniors, one individual, one community at a time. With dignity and independence, respect and vigor. A beautiful, welcoming, clean, and nurturing environment, full of the energy and excitement of real people helping each other to live fulfilling lives: That's what a Sage Senior Living Community feels like. Welcome home.
