The Ventura County Area Agency on Aging provides access to services to all eligible community members without discrimination. Services & Advocacy for GLBT Elders (SAGE) is the country’s largest and oldest organization dedicated to improving the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) older adults. As a SAGE Affiliate, VCAAA upholds this dedication.
All people deserve an opportunity to age well, free from discrimination and surrounded by the people they love with the support they need. Yet according to SAGE, LGBT older people are more likely than other older Americans to have serious health problems and more likely to be poor. That’s especially true for older lesbians, transgender elders and LGBT elders of color.
