Reviews for Sage Eldercare Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

SAGE provides a wide variety of high-quality community-based services for seniors under one roof. This makes it very convenient for caregivers and seniors to coordinate much-needed services

There are so many ways to get involved with this great organization! SAGE has volunteers delivering daily meals to older adults in the surrounding communities, furniture craftsmen who repair chairs and other furniture in a workshop, helpers in the adult day program, office workers, receptionists, and more! But that's not why you should help or donate to SAGE -- you should help this group because they are helping older adults who are often living alone and need special care or a place to go to while their family goes to work. They also have community programs and exercise classes for older adults who are more capable. And, they've been around for 60+ years, so they know what they're doing!

I am a Meals on Wheels volunteer and see first hand the good things this organization does for the elder community. Sage is a terrific organization with a very dedicated staff. The work that Sage does is a vital part of this community.

My sister-in-law who is disabled attends SAGE. The staff is incredible! The care that they provide is amazing. I joke with my wife that I want to get on the waiting list now to be sure that I will be able to go there when I am eligible. Yes I am a member of the public, but I am also a donor and I am proud to support such a wonderful organization.

As a volunteer in the SAGE Spend-A-Day program I witness firsthand each week how the members benefit. The staff is extremely caring, professional, patient, and empathetic. Each member is truly treated as an individual and as such their individual needs are addressed accordingly. It gives seniors a chance to socialize and participate in fun activities - friendships are formed and I believe it helps counteract the loneliness many feel when their spouses have passed away or they don't have family in the area. I adore all the members of the program - my time at SAGE each week is priceless!

I have been volunteering for the Meals on Wheels Program for 2 months now and I am impressed with how efficiently the program runs, the friendliness of all Sage employees and volunteers, and the organization of the entire operation. At the end of my Meals on Wheels route I feel grateful that I can be a part of
an organization that reaches so many people in need.

There is nothing I can think of currently.

Mother lived to be 100 due to the great care of a live-in SAGE nurse. I volunteer with MOW and see how welcome the hot meal is and also the friendly chat we have with clients. Often we are the only people the client sees during the day. When things are amiss at their homes we have a social worker who then evaluates the situation and remedies it. SAGE is a wonderful organization and the main reason I stay in NJ where I have no family. SAGE is my family.

like the Home Health Department to be more responsive now to potential client's needs

Sage has been helping my wife for over 5 years; first with day care and more recently with home care.
These services have given me the freedom to take care of my personal needs and business that I could not have done without Sage's help.

My Mother attended the adult day care program at Sage Eldercare in Summit New Jersey for 5 years or more. She loved attending, and got up each morning eager to go. She enjoyed the special programs, including music and arts and crafts. My mother enjoyed talking with the other residents. She even enjoyed the van rides.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Include more arts and crafts.

Role: Professional with expertise in this field
Rating: 5 stars  

SAGE provides some of my elderly clients with much needed services. The most impressive in my opinion is the GPS program and the wonderful Nurses that provide guidance to the many seniors that need it. The Spend-A-Day program is also run by wonderful staff and allow seniors to age in place and with grace. I will definitely keep supporting SAGE and the wonderful programs they provide hand-in-hand with my home care company's services.
