“The grants awarded to SAGE Eldercare in 2022 make it possible for us to continue our mission of offering a comprehensive array of programs and services for older adults and caregivers, promoting independence and quality of life,” said Galina Muller, Director of Administration & Finance of SAGE Eldercare.
SAGE Eldercare is one of only a few providers in the nation — and the only one in New Jersey — to provide a full range of eldercare services under one roof. For 68 years, SAGE’s mission has been to help older adults remain living in their own homes. Whether it is assisting with a Home Health Aide, helping with food insecurity, or offering a stimulating adult day medical program, SAGE can help. Their team provides referrals, caregiver support groups and free and confidential Medicare counseling. And as the unique challenges of older adults and caregivers evolve, they offer educational programming every step of the way to keep the community informed of best practices.
