Community Education  SAGE hosts programs and events to help educate and provide resources for local residents.  Outside professionals are often brought in to discuss topics that are relevant to older adults, their families, and caregivers.

Exercise Classes  SAGE’s exercise classes, including Fun-to-be-Fit, Gentle Chair Yoga, and Tai Chi, are open to anyone 60 years of age and older. The exercise programs are open to the public and are designed with a gentle approach for all fitness levels to improve strength, flexibility, and overall conditioning in an effort to prevent falls.

Support Groups  SAGE hosts free caregiver support groups that are open to the public. Led by SAGE’s Licensed Clinical Social Worker who specializes in eldercare, the groups offer opportunities for discussion about topics including the challenges and trials of caring for someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia, balancing work and caregiving, long-distance caregiving, navigating the healthcare system, coping with caregiver emotions and managing stress, and defining caregiver roles. Groups specifically for spouses that are caregivers or for adult children who are caregivers meet frequently.
