SUMMIT, NJ - The Summit Area Public Foundation (SAPF) has awarded a $60,000 grant to SAGE Eldercare. The grant will support SAGE's Guidance programs.
SAGE Guidance is a comprehensive approach to reaching older adults and caregivers in their homes, and helping them thrive with long-term wellness and independence, through social work support and free referrals, medical care planning, and a full calendar of educational programs that responds to the communities’ changing needs.
SAGE Guidance is a cluster of three focus areas including InfoCare, GPS Services, and public education. InfoCare’s licensed social workers and registered nurses personally usher the most vulnerable seniors toward long-term wellness, in addition to providing free local and long-distance information and referrals.
The SAPF is a non-profit community foundation that fosters philanthropy in the Summit area by identifying local needs and offering donors flexible ways to make a difference in the lives of their neighbors.
