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.
