Grocery Shopping and Errand Service

“Need things done? Let SAGE do the run.”

If you are over the age of 60 and would like help with your grocery shopping, errands or laundry, SAGE can do it for you.

Shopping Service includes:

  • Grocery shopping for the homebound or those recuperating from surgery or illness.
  • Errands to the post office, library, city hall, pet store, etc.
  • Laundry and dry cleaning pick up and delivery.
  • Check-in/safety visits.

 

Don’t see a service listed? Just ask! All requests will be considered.

This service is available to the elderly or disabled who reside in Union County (Berkeley Heights, Mountainside, New Providence, Springfield, and Summit), Essex County (Millburn and Short Hills), and Morris County (Chatham and Madison).

  • Non-regular participants must call SAGE Eldercare by Friday morning to request service for the following week.
  • Personal shopping lists and checks can be picked up early in the week. Orders are delivered Wednesday or Thursday, depending on grocery store and town.
  • A nominal fee is charged for this service

For those who have a family member or an attorney/guardian overseeing their finances, checks are sent to us in advance for 4-6 weeks of service. Shopping lists and checks can be picked up at the client’s home. However, in order to keep the program running efficiently, we prefer the lists to be mailed, faxed or e-mailed.

“The shopping service is not only a great help to me—keeping me well supplied with food essential to my diet—but it is such a relief to my daughters who do not live nearby, and can be assured I am taken care of."

Volunteers Sought for SAGE Shopping Service

Can you spend an hour or two a week to shop for groceries or run errands for senior citizens who are unable to do these chores for themselves? The SAGE Shopping Service has an urgent need for volunteers to help elderly persons with grocery shopping once a week on Wednesday or Thursday morning. Grocery shopping takes only 60 to 90 minutes and provides an opportunity to build personal rapport with a senior citizen. If you have young children at home you could easily bring them along with you to shop.
