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

Union County, NJ — Union County reminds residents seeking reliable information about services for adults age 60 and older can benefit from visits from the Division on Aging, an office of the Union County Department of Human Services. There will be visits at convenient locations throughout the County in February and residents are welcome to come and speak to experienced staff about services available.

The community visits are scheduled every month through Union County’s ASK (Aging Services Kiosk) program. In February, the ASK program will be present at public libraries in Clark, Garwood and Union, as well as the Rahway Senior Center.

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

 

The ASK program offers access to home delivered meals, respite care, home care, adult day care, and support services for caregivers. Assistance with completing applications and forms is also provided.
