The mission of Sage Eldercare is excellent and a much needed resource in our community. As a non-for-profit organization donors should be aware of the high salary of the Executive Director and others in leadership positions. It is not appropriate for a non-profit with this sized annual budget to be footing the bill for such a large building and to an Exec. Director that is over-paid.

SAGE Eldercare is a valuable resource for seniors in need, for those wanting to volunteer with a terrific organization, for caregivers needing assistance and for those wanting to learn more about aging in place. SAGE much deserves your donor dollars and your volunteer efforts! So many times I hear from out-of-staters, "I wish there was a SAGE near me."

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

Get the word out, more and louder!

With the money that was raised for the new building at 290 Broad Street, it should have been used more effectively. There is a large empty building that is dark and much too big for the employees that are working there. Too much wasted space and high operational costs. The salaries of top Administration is very high considering that it is a non-profit and has been running with a very large deficit on an annual basis. Very sad to see such a wonderful organization and Board of Directors make such terrible choices.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The past 5 years.

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

Modify building, rent out half. Readjust salaries.
