The public is invited to visit SAGE Eldercare on Tuesday, March 13, 2012 at 10 am for “Coffee & Conversation.” This is an opportunity for anyone to visit SAGE’s headquarters at 290 Broad Street in Summit, meet staff and trustees of the organization, see some of its services in action, and join in a conversation with SAGE’s Executive Director, Jessica Rosenzweig.
“This is a chance to introduce the breadth and scope of SAGE Eldercare’s services and discuss how we positively affect the lives of thousands of older adults and caregivers in our region each year,” stated Jessica Rosenzweig, Executive Director of SAGE. “In 1954, SAGE started by providing ‘homemakers’ to those in need, and we have grown to offer an array of services that help older adults live with dignity in their own homes. We also provide education, wellness and support opportunities for families and caregivers. We want to make sure that our neighbors know of the many resources we offer to help people successfully age-in-place and care for loved ones.”
To RSVP for this event or if you have questions, please contact Dawn Knill, SAGE Director of Development, by calling 908.598.5503 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The session is scheduled to last between 1 and 1-1/2 hours, depending on the size of the group. If the date and time is not convenient, an alternative date and time can be arranged. There is no fee for the event.
SAGE Eldercare supports the independence, well-being and quality of life of older adults, their families and caregivers, through the provision of client-centered health, social and support services. Founded in 1954, SAGE is both the oldest and one of the few non-profit eldercare agencies in the United States that offers a broad and comprehensive array of services under one roof that assist elderly, often frail, adults to remain independent in their own homes. SAGE Eldercare programs include: HomeCare; Meals on Wheels; Spend-A-Day Adult Day Care Center; GPS; InfoCare free information and referral service; Fall Prevention Initiative; Home Repair Service; Grocery Shopping and Errand Service; Bill Paying Service; Alzheimer’s and PREP caregiver support groups; and SHIP (State Health Insurance Assistance Program). SAGE Eldercare serves over 5,000 older people and their families annually in Union, Essex, Morris and Somerset counties. For more information, call 908-273-5550 or visit www.sageeldercare.org.
