Asbury has earned platinum certification from SAGECare, an LGBT accrediting body that fosters welcoming cultures for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people.
In June 2018, Asbury, a continuing care retirement community in Gaithersburg, Md., achieved bronze level certification, becoming the first senior living community in Maryland to earn that designation. Read The Washington Post feature on Asbury’s SAGECare journey.
“We are a community of welcome to individuals of all backgrounds and faith traditions, and this certification helps solidify our commitment to serving those in the LGBT community,” says Rob Liebreich, Executive Director of Asbury Methodist Village. “Together, Asbury and SAGECare will continue our partnership to serve people with the best care possible, and help all people age with dignity and respect, with the comfort of knowing they will be celebrated for who they are.”
SAGECare (www.sageusa.care) is a division of SAGE, the country’s oldest and longest organization dedicated to improving the lives of LGBT older adults. Platinum in the highest level of recognition and is based on organizational training.
While Asbury Methodist Village was founded more than 90 years ago by members of the Methodist Church, our Mission has expanded to become a vibrant, welcoming continuing care retirement community that includes and embraces people of all cultures, beliefs, and backgrounds.
