Christmas in July at SAGE
Friday, July 27, 10:00 am -- 5:00 pm
SUMMIT, NJ – The SAGE Resale Shop will soon be filled with snowmen and Christmas ornaments, decorations, greenery, holiday plates, serving pieces, and more. The Resale Shop will hold its annual “Christmas in July” sale, starting at 10 am on July 27, and continue until the merchandise is sold out.
The Resale Shop, located at 31B Chatham Road, Summit, and open Monday through Saturday, 10 am to 5 pm, offers an ever-changing selection of quality goods, at reasonable prices. In addition, the Resale Shop accepts donations during business hours of furniture, bric-a-brac, jewelry, shoes, gifts, decorations, housewares, china, and in-season, gently used current fashion clothing, from individuals or estate donations.
“This is a very popular sale that we all look forward to each year. We recommend coming early for the best selection,” said Rose Rittweger, Manager of SAGE’s Resale Shop. “One of the great benefits of shopping at (or giving unwanted items to) the Resale Shop is that the funds go directly back to the community for programs and services for older adults and their caregivers at SAGE Eldercare.”
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.
