Just “ASK” for Information about Senior Services in Union County

Union County, NJ – Union County residents seeking information about services for senior adults age 60 and older can visit any of seven convenient Aging Services Kiosk (ASK) locations to speak with staff from the county’s Department of Human Services, Division on Aging.

Experienced staff will be available at public libraries in Linden, Mountainside, Clark, Fanwood and Summit. ASK will also be available at a community center in Westfield.

“Our goal is to help residents connect with expert assistance and personal guidance, in a friendly, familiar environment close to home,” said Freeholder Chairman Sergio Granados. “The ASK program has helped hundreds of County residents since it first began in 2012 and I encourage seniors, their families and caregivers to make use of this popular service.”

Through the ASK community outreach program, members of the staff travel throughout Union County providing information about services such as home delivered meals, respite care, home care, adult day care and support services for caregivers.
