Target demographics: older adults and caregivers
Direct beneficiaries per year: 7,000 older adults and caregivers throughout Union, Essex, Morris, and Somerset Counties, as well as across the United States.
Geographic areas served: New Jersey
Programs: our Spend-A-Day Adult Day Health Center, HomeCare, Meals On Wheels, Grocery Shopping and Errand Service, GPS (Guidance, Planning and Support) Services, InfoCare, SHIP Medicare, Support Groups, Fall Prevention Initiatives, Exercise Classes, and Community Education Programs. We also provide ways to give back through our Resale Shop, Furniture Restoration Workshop and volunteer program.
We are very disappointed that one member of the staff has discussed our family member, his condition, and general financial business with someone OUTSIDE of SAGE. We are currently pursuing our options against this egregious breech of trust!
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.
