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.

The Caregivers Support Group was an absolute life saver for me. I cared for my mother for 5 or 6 years and just having a "listening' group once a month was so helpful. It was so wonderful to talk to other people who were in the same position both for support and for ideas! My mother also attended the Spend-a Day program and enjoyed it very much. Thank you Sage!

My husband was very ill, and I needed help, I contacted Sage Care and immediately I was able to get help. The visiting nurse made contact with me, and I used Nursing assitans for almost 2 years. During the time that I was their client I can say the organization was very helpful in every way. The secretaries, and medical personal were very understanding on my husband needs and me, since I was the care giver I was a nurse for 30 years but when you have to care of a loved one 24/7 It's taxing, You never have enough help. I will recommend SAGE anyone to use your service. THank you so much. I am the wife of George N Fabian,who pass away this year. I am glad I have this opportunity to extend my gratitude to Sage Care and their staff.

My wife broke her right femur in a fall. This is the second time that femur broke. As a result she was "non-weight bearing" on that leg for several weeks, i.e. limited to a wheel chair. We contacted SAGE for a home health aide. Within hours one was arranged. The aide was always on time, very professional and engaging. When the wheel chair days were over the aide was no longer needed, but she was essential for a period of time. Thank you SAGE for you assistance when we needed it. Larry G

SAGE Eldercare demonstrates an unwavering commitment to enriching the quality of life for our older adults and their families through a variety of services that support their continued well-being and independence.

Not only is SAGE Eldercare the oldest eldercare agency in New Jersey but started one of New Jersey’s first Meals-On-Wheels program in 1966 and opened one of New Jersey’s first adult day care programs in 1975.

I have had the privilege of not only knowing of SAGE Eldercare for over 14 years but having first-hand assistance from their InfoCare service. The InfoCare service provided me, as a family caregiver, with information, outreach, and much needed support when I desperately reached out for guidance. I occasionally still attend their monthly support group but now it is more to listen and support those going through the same crisis of caring for an older adult, as I did, and expressing to families at the meetings that they are not alone.....a "Paying It Forward" for me.

My mother has Dementia. She lives with my husband and I. We had difficulty placing her in a program until we found SAGE. The staff are remarkable, dedicated and most of all committed to their clients. My mother flourished in the program. SAGE offers copious information to care givers as well as support groups and referrals. I don't know what I would have done without their guidance and support.

My husband a former business man and later a career change teacher of ED students
was a volunteer with Sage. He was very much impressed with the compassionate,
unbelievable dedication and caring of clients.

When the time came for a transition from volunteer to client the move was made
very welcoming due to the professional and compassionate conversations with the director.
Most remarkable was the respect presented making the transition as comfortable as possible.
It was viewed as a joint decision.

My husband totally enjoys his days at Sage. He particularly enjoys the music and art
programs. The holidays are rejoiced throughout the organization as a true Celebration.
Sage is a safe family environment that provides support and respect while embracing
their clients.
