SITE IS MORE INTERACTIVE, USER FRIENDLY AND INFORMATIVE
The Union County Department of Human Services announced today that the Division on Aging/ADRC has launched its redesigned website offering the public a streamlined site that is easier to use, with simpler navigation, new content, and interactive features. The website address is https://ucnj.org/dhs/aging/.
Among the many useful items the redesigned website features:
- A more intuitive, user friendly redesign with a new look and feel
- A streamlined menu bar that simplifies navigation
- Interactive abilities allowing documents to be downloaded or saved onto desktops
- Easy to read information boxes and program breakdowns
“The new site improved its navigation to easily connect visitors to any information they need under the Division of Aging,” said Commissioner Chair Rebecca Williams. “These changes make this section of the website much more accessible and easy to read on both a computer and mobile devices, so guests no longer have to search layers of links to find what they are looking for.”
“We incorporated more prominent tabs to simplify navigating the site, giving residents the option to save time and assist in expediting their questions or visit to our sites,” said Debbie-Ann Anderson, Director of Human Services. “The page will continue to be updated regularly with the most up-to-date information.”
“The Division on Aging recognizes the changing landscape and the need to access information quickly, easily, and accurately. We hope this new design and information-sharing platform reaches all of those individuals looking for assistance and ultimately discovering who we are and how we can help, and our dedicated, professional staff remain available to answer your calls,” said Natalie Zarrillo, Executive Director, Division on Aging.
