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 are offered as an off-shoot of the fall prevention initiative, but are open to anyone 60 years of age and older.
Current classes are:
Gentle Chair Yoga
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 currently hosts three free caregiver support groups that are open to the public. One group is affiliated with the Alzheimer’s New Jersey and provides an opportunity for family members and their caregivers to discuss the challenges and trials of caring for someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia. This group meets monthly on the fourth Tuesday at 10:00 am. SAGE also offers one group specifically for spouses that are caregivers and one group for adult children who are caregivers.
