If you are thinking of buying an iPhone or if your children or grandchildren are suggesting apps for you to try on your smartphone, then join SAGE Eldercare on Thursday, October 10 from 1:30 pm to 3:00 pm for a program entitled “There’s an App for That.” 

Members of the Summit Old Guard Technology User Group will be on hand to provide an overview of wireless devices and discuss some of the various applications that can be downloaded from the internet to wireless devices, focusing primarily on smartphones.  These applications, most of which are free or cost a nominal charge, are commonly called “Apps.”  Selected Apps will be demonstrated and there will be time for questions at the end of the program.

The October 10 program will take place at 290 Broad Street in Summit.  To register for this free program, which is open to the public, please call 908.598.5548 or email education@sageeldercare.org.

SAGE Eldercare is a unique community resource that offers a comprehensive array of programs and services for older adults and caregivers, promoting independence and quality of life.  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 and 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 older adults in the community. 

SAGE Eldercare serves 7,000 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.
