Clients from the SAGE Eldercare Spend-A-Day program participate in a video -- which was produced by the Visual Arts Center of Jersey (VACNJ) and will be shown at the VACNJ's spring gala -- showcasing the 'Art from the Heart' program. 'Art from the Heart' is made possible by a grant from the Summit Area Public Foundation, a community foundation that provides grants to tax-exempt organizations in the Summit area. Art from the Heart is designed to enhance memory in seniors coping with cognitive challenges.
SAGE’s Spend-A-Day Adult Day Health Center provides older adults with structured social, physical and cognitive activities, meals planned by a registered dietitian, 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.
