Incorporated in 1954, SAGE Eldercare is a private, not-for-profit organization dedicated to the health, happiness and general welfare of older adults and their families. We grew out of a two-year study initiated by the social studies department of the Summit College Club. A local council on aging emerged from the Club’s commitment to educate itself and members of the community on issues affecting the elderly. Council representation came from civic groups, churches, social agencies and interested residents. These community efforts resulted in the formation of SAGE.
We are distinguished among eldercare agencies for being both the oldest eldercare agency in New Jersey and one of the few not-for-profit eldercare agencies in the United States that offers a comprehensive array of services all under one roof.
We began one of New Jersey’s first Meals-on-Wheels programs in 1966 and opened one of New Jersey’s first adult day care programs (Spend-A-Day) in 1975. Many of the services and programs we provide have been used by other public and private agencies as a model for their programs. Now in our 66th year of operation, SAGE offers programs and services to older adults and their families in Union, Morris, Somerset and Essex Counties. Please give us a call today and see how we can help you.
