SAGE is a unique non-profit serving seniors in NJ. It is one of the longest running non-profits serving seniors and their caregivers in NJ--as it was established in 1954. The first service the organization provided was Home Care. It offers one of the oldest Meals-On-Wheels programs in the state--this service was introduced in 1966. SAGE also operates the longest running adult day care program in the State--Spend-A-Day which opened in 1975. SAGE has been an expert on "aging in place" since 1954!
I've consistently been impressed with SAGE's ability to help not only seniors for whom they provide direct care but for families and caregivers who need questions answered, support, respite, and care themselves. SAGE's multitude of services offers a unique, comprehensive, and personal answer for the many, many of us who want to age in place at home. SAGE also offers so many volunteer opportunities for the community. They have a fabulous workshop where volunteers refinish furniture and the profits support the services provided. They have a fully stocked resale shop that also supports the organization. And grocery shopping and delivering meals is such a meaningful opportunity for volunteers of all ages. We're so lucky to have this organization in our community.
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
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."
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.
