Review for Sage Eldercare Inc, Summit, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Working with the SAGE Meals on Wheels program delivering to those who cannot manage on their own has been a real eye-opener for me. Each client has their own story and they feel so much more connected to their community knowing they can easily reach out to SAGE and will hear a friendly and helpful voice on the phone. It is a privilege to get to know the seniors on my route, and to see how grateful they are when you enter their home with their meal. The seniors are also thrilled that they can receive home repairs at very low cost to them through SAGE's many programs. The seniors can trust the workers who come their homes.
On the occasion when I cannot deliver, my daughter takes over and they love to get to know the family and that we would not let them down; they are important to us.
I have seen how relieved a husband is when his wife with dementia can attend the Spend a Day program, and he can run errands and not have to be confined to the house looking after his wife.
And on a personal level, I have gained important knowledge about how to deal with my own aging parents through their many free classes, for example, keeping the home safe from accidents.
Thank you to SAGE for being there, and for being in the forefront of eldercare in our community.
