|About||Sages Elder Care provides free in home consultation and services for older adults who want to remain independent in their homes.|
SAGES ELDER CARE grew out of the interest of its founder, Khan McClellan, to develop a means for elders to remain independent in their homes while receiving the supportive services needed to maintain a high quality of life. Khan’s passion is rooted in the respect for elders that was instilled into him by his grandparents and family in rural Mississippi. Serving the community as a United Methodist pastor and a hospice chaplain, Khan has witnessed and experienced the challenges that face aging adults as they navigate government and private resources. After completing classes at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, Khan received a Professional Advancement Certificate in Gerontology. Sages Elder Care was formed after graduation and now Sages Elder Care seeks to not only serve the needs of older adults, but to be active in the creation of an age friendly community in El Paso County.
