Spend-A-Day Medical Adult Day Center

Due to COVID-19 we’ve had to temporarily suspend our Adult Day program here at SAGE. We look forward to the New Jersey Department of Health lifting this mandate so we may welcome back old friends and meet new ones. 

In the meantime…Telehealth

While temporarily closed, we have been supporting our Spend-A-Day participants through our Telehealth Program. Telehealth provides continuity, interaction and recreational activity sessions over the phone. Having a familiar staff person to speak with has brought a great deal of happiness to those missing their friends at the center. We are also communicating with participants and caregivers via a bi-weekly email series.  Each email has tips to promote caregiver self-care and specific recreation and exercise activities to do at home.  If you would like to receive the email series please email pmarusic@sageeledercare.org 

Program Hours:

  • Monday through Friday 9:30 am – 3:30 pm
  • Extended Hours:  Monday through Friday 8:30 am – 5:00 pm

Call 908-598-5520 for questions and to arrange a meeting with a member of our staff.

Spend-A-Day Medical Adult Day Center is licensed by the NJ Department of Health.
