Positive Aging Community Champions on the Move: BROADMEAD ACHEIVES PLATINUM SAGECARE CREDENTIAL

Broadmead is honored to announce that our community has achieved Platinum level certification for LGBTQ+ Cultural Competency Training through SAGECare, an organization dedicated to providing competency training and consulting on LGBTQ+ aging-related issues to service providers. A community- wide celebration including residents and staff was held on June 28th, 2022 to commemorate the momentous occasion.

In order to receive Platinum level certification, 80% of employees must receive at least 1 hour of LGBTQ+ Aging Training, and 80% of Executives/Administrators must receive at least 4 hours. “It is essential to have a group of staff, residents, and board members engaged in this journey,” says Robin Somers, President & Chief Executive Officer of Broadmead. “This special certification merely enhances the fact that our community truly holds a sincere commitment to the vision of diversity, inclusion, and acceptance.”

Broadmead would like to thank all those in our wonderful community for making Broadmead a warm and welcoming environment for all.
