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

Union County, NJ – Union County residents seeking information about services for adults age 60 and older can speak with staff from the county’s Division on Aging at seven libraries and senior centers in Union County in December. The program, called Aging Services Kiosk, travels to different communities each month.

Any senior, and their family members or caregivers, can visit any of the ASK locations for assistance.

“Our goal is to help senior residents access the resources they need to stay connected with their communities,” said Freeholder Chair Bette Jane Kowalski. “The ASK program helps seniors, their families, and their caregivers get expert guidance in person, in a comfortable setting close to home.”

At each ASK location, Division on Aging staff members provide information on home delivered meals, respite care, home care, adult day care and other support services. They also help visitors fill out applications and forms.
