Mission

SAGE Eldercare is a unique community resource that offers a comprehensive array of programs and services for older adults and caregivers, promoting independence and quality of life.

History

Since 1954, SAGE has been helping make your community an amazing place to age. Our nonprofit organization is committed to being the leading provider of programs and services to meet the changing needs of older adults, their families, and caregivers.

SAGE Eldercare is distinguished among its field with being one of the oldest eldercare agencies in New Jersey and also one of a few nonprofit eldercare agencies in the United States that offers a comprehensive array of services under one roof.

Annually, SAGE serves more than 7,000 older people and their families in Union, Essex, Morris, and Somerset Counties, and beyond.

Here is an overview of the variety of services and programs we offer.
