SAGE Eldercare is publishing a cookbook this spring which includes a collection of recipes compiled from clients, volunteers, supporters, and staff.  This one-of-a-kind cookbook will contain more than 250 well-loved recipes including appetizers, breads, main entrees, side dishes, desserts, and more!

Funds raised from this project will help support SAGE’s fifteen programs and services, which benefit thousands of older adults, their caregivers and families throughout the year.  The SAGE cookbook is a perfect gift for friends, a favorite teacher, neighbor or relative. 

“Last fall, two local Girl Scouts approached us to help compile a cookbook so that they could earn their service badge for their Silver Award,” stated Dawn Knill, Director of Development and Public Relations for SAGE Eldercare.  “We were thrilled with the idea since we had not put a cookbook together since 2007 and we have had a lot of requests to update or reprint the last cookbook.  This presented a wonderful opportunity for the Girl Scouts and SAGE.”

Copies of the cookbook can be pre-ordered for $15 until Friday, March 15.  After this date, printed copies will be $20 or an eBook version will be available for $9.99.  To place an order or to find out more, please call Christine Ziegler at 908.598.5504 or email cziegler@sageeldercare.org.

SAGE Eldercare supports the independence, well-being and quality of life of older adults, their families and caregivers, through the provision of client-centered health, social and support services.  Founded in 1954, SAGE is one of the few non-profit eldercare agencies in the United States, and the oldest in New Jersey, that offers a broad and comprehensive array of services under one roof that assist elderly, often frail, adults to remain independent in their own homes. 

Programs at SAGE Eldercare include: HomeCare; Meals On Wheels; Spend-A-Day Adult Day Health Center; GPS (Guidance Planning Support) Services; InfoCare free information and referral service; Fall Prevention Initiative; Home Repair Service; Grocery Shopping and Errand Service; Bill Paying Service; Holistic Living Services; Alzheimer’s and PREP caregiver support groups; Community Education; and Union County Medicare SHIP (State Health Insurance Assistance Program).  In addition, SAGE has operated a Furniture Restoration Workshop, run by volunteers who specialize in caning and rushing chairs and refinishing furniture, and a Resale Shop for more than 50 years.  Both provide essential funding that supports the organization’s programs and services for seniors in the community. 

SAGE Eldercare serves over 6,000 people throughout Union, Essex, Morris and Somerset Counties, as well as across the United States.  For more information, call 908.273.5550 or visit www.sageeldercare.org.

Fear of Rising Rates? Remember The Reason You Own Bonds

Rate hikes can dampen bond performance, but keep perspective on how rising rates impact ...

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.

 

Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
