New Aging Services Kiosk (ASK) is on the Move in Union County with Six Locations this Month

ASK1The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders is proud to announce six additional dates and locations for the new Aging Services Kiosk (ASK) program to visit communities throughout Union County this month.

“The primary goal of the new mobile Aging Services Kiosk program is to help provide our senior residents and their caregivers with convenient access to information about county support programs and services that are available to them,” said Freeholder Bette Jane Kowalski, liaison to the Human Services Advisory Council.

Offered through the Division on Aging and Disability Resource Connection (ADRC), under the Department of Human Services, the new Aging Services Kiosk (ASK) outreach program will travel throughout Union County to provide senior adults age 60 and above and their caregivers information about services such as home delivered meals, respite care, home care, and adult day care, as well as support services for caregivers. Assistance with completing applications and forms will also be available.
