Union County’s new mobile Aging Service Kiosk (ASK) will host free information events at six public locations in October. The events are designed to provide residents with a convenient, friendly way to find out about services for the aging, and for their families and caregivers.
“Our seniors have found the new ASK program to be helpful this summer, and we are glad to be able to extend it into the fall,” said Freeholder Bette Jane Kowalski, who is a member of the Union County Human Services Advisory Board. “If you or someone you know is in need of assistance, I encourage you to stop by at any one of the six upcoming events.
ASK is staffed by professionals with the Division on Aging and Disability Resource Connection of the Union County Department of Human Services. They will provide information and guidance on home delivered meals, respite care, home care, adult day care and other services.
They can also provide help with filling out applications and other forms, if needed.
Union County residents may attend ASK events in any municipality. The events scheduled for October are:[ezcol_1half]
