SUMMIT, NJ - Featuring an 'Under The Sea' theme, the eighth annual Senior Prom at SAGE Eldercare for participants of SAGE’s Spend-A-Day Adult Day Health Care Program was filled with dancing, singing, laughter and treats, with nearly everyone either on the dance floor or singing and swaying along in their seats to Rhonda Denet, who sang a mix of popular dance songs and classic oldies.

“The prom is always a special day at SAGE,” said Susan Wirth, SAGE’s Manager of Recreation and Volunteer Outreach. “The staff works very hard to pull everything together from the invitations and flowers to the food and decorations. It’s a wonderful team effort and a great day for our Spend-A-Day participants.”

SAGE’s Spend-A-Day Adult Day Health Center provides older adults with structured social, physical and cognitive activities, meals planned by a registered dietician, and support for participants and families from a geriatric social worker.  Spend-A-Day is licensed by the Department of Health and Senior Services as an adult day medical program and is staffed with a full-time nurse to medically supervise the participants. Additional support is provided by physical, occupational and speech therapists.

Since 1975, SAGE’s Spend-A-Day Adult Day Health Center has been providing much-needed respite for family and caregivers and a “home away from home” for the participants, in a safe and secure environment.

Community support for the event was generously supplied by Lois Shanker of Right at Home in Chatham and Laurie Gaulke of Mary Kay -- who volunteered to do nails and makeup -- and Hall’s Garden Center in Berkeley Heights who donated the flowers.

SAGE Eldercare has, since 1954, been focused on "helping to make the communities it serves amazing places to age."  The organization provides a wide array of information, support, and services designed to help individuals lead the most independent and active lives possible, from helping with errands, to exercise classes, community programs, care planning, and home health care.

SAGE’s expertise helps older adults remain independent in their own homes. For more information, call 908-273-5550 or visit sageeldercare.org.

SAGE Eldercare is located at 290 Broad Street.
