Union County, NJ — Union County residents seeking information about services for seniors age 60 and older can visit any of seven Aging Services Kiosk (ASK) events in November to speak with experienced staff from the county’s Department of Human Services, Division on Aging and Disability Resource Connection.

The November schedule brings ASK events to libraries and other public buildings in Clark, Elizabeth, Fanwood, Linden, Mountainside, Union and Westfield.

“The ASK program gives you a chance to review your situation with our staff one-on-one, get helpful information and apply for resources in Union County,” said Freeholder Bette Jane Kowalski, who is the Freeholder Board liaison to the Human Services Advisory Board. “ASK is a program for all County residents, so please visit any convenient location.”

The Division on Aging and Disability Resource Connection is based in Elizabeth. Through the ASK community outreach program, members of the staff travel throughout Union County to help connect residents with information about home delivered meals, respite care, home care, adult day care support services for caregivers, and more.
