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

Union County, NJ – Union County residents seeking reliable information about services for adults age 60 and older can come to convenient locations throughout the County and speak in person with experienced staff from the Division on Aging, an office of the Union County Department of Human Services.

The community visits are scheduled every month through Union County’s ASK (Aging Services Kiosk) program.

In January, the ASK program will visit public libraries in Clark, Cranford, Kenilworth, Garwood, Mountainside, Summit and Union, and the Rahway Senior Center in Rahway

“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.”

Guidance offered through the ASK program includes home delivered meals, respite care, home care, adult day care, and support services for caregivers.

Assistance with completing applications and forms is also provided.

All Union County residents are welcome to attend any ASK event. Please note that on January 16, locations in Garwood and Kenilworth will both be available.

In case of snow, residents may call 908-572-4870 on the day of the event to confirm.
