"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.  
Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

  Graduates continue to meet regularly to collaborate, seek guidance and share support

for their plans and projects to improve the lives and our communities' elders and lessen the burdens and challenges affecting the personal and social well-being of our senior citizens. 

New Jersey residents who suspect their loved ones are being abused, mistreated, or neglected by unscrupulous home health care providers can have access to micro-surveillance cameras that can be easily hidden to detect abuse and protect patients. The "Safe Care Cam"  Program makes these cameras available for free 30-day loans. 

Call the Division of Consumer Affairs at either (973) 504-6375  or (800) 242-5846. Follow voice prompts to a "Safe Care Cam"  Program voicemail box and leave a message with your name and contact information and you will receive a return call with the program details..
