sabio [sah-bee-oh]
adjective: sage; wise. Someone learned.


With both founding partners sharing a strong Latin heritage, where older adults are venerated, we believe our country’s older adults and ourselves as aging people deserve excellent health and health care.

We believe health care models should be created  For older adults, not adapted to older adults. We believe we should use health technology where it makes sense, and not pretend that people and relationships do not matter. We all matter. Relationships matter. Aging matters.

That is why we are Sabio Health.
