Union County Seeks Public Comment from Senior Residents

Union County, NJ – The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders announced today that it will hold a public meeting for Union County Seniors for input on the “2015 Area Plan.” Each year, the Area Plan provides a blueprint for coordinating senior services and keeping them up to date.

The public meeting will be held Monday, October 6 at 9:30 a.m. at the Union Township Community Action Organization located at 2410 Springfield Avenue in Union.

“This public meeting offers seniors from all of Union County’s 21 municipalities an opportunity to express their views about what service needs and issues the plan should address,” said Freeholder Chairman Christopher Hudak. “We encourage the public to attend the meeting to offer input on this effort.”

The meeting will be conducted by the Union County Department of Human Services, Division on Aging and Disability Resource Connection (ADRC).

Staff from ADRC will present an overview of the plan, including the impact of existing conditions on seniors and their families, caregiver needs, service strategies, demographics, and policy trends.

Local social services agencies and their programs for seniors that are funded by ADRC will also be reviewed.
