Sage Generation
Sage Generation was founded in November 2015 in response to the growing need for senior resources in Chaffee County. We live in a unique, beautiful community where many of us want to grow old. We believe the focus on senior resources and housing should be toward "thriving". Located in our local neighborhoods, focused on individual choice and autonomy, and valuing quality of life over cost savings and efficiency.
