About Us

AgeBetter, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) organization whose sponsors are two well-established nonprofit retirement communities in Dane County, Wisconsin: Attic Angel Association and Oakwood Village.

Formerly named Madison Area Continuing Care Consortium, AgeBetter, Inc., began as an LLC in 1998. In 2006, and just a year after launching the Sharing Active Independent Lives – SAIL program, we applied for and were approved as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization.

We soon learned about an organization similar to our flagship program, SAIL, named Beacon Hill Village and located in Boston, MA. Today, SAIL is considered the nation’s second oldest “village” among more than 280 other villages that were created since 2006. SAIL is a charter member of the Village to Village Network—a national association of villages and serves as a mentor organization for some of the newly developing villages.

A 2017 strategic planning retreat that included key stakeholders resulted in a new plan for our organization. This plan generated the creation of a full-time Executive Director position dedicated to developing new initiatives in addition to ensuring long-term sustainability of the SAIL program. In 2018, we changed our name to AgeBetter, Inc., to represent the holistic focus of our organization’s plan and future vision.

Our current initiatives include:

  • Continued growth and expansion of SAIL — Sharing Active Independent Lives
  • Safe at Home pilot — free home and medication assessments for older adults living in Dane County
