Union County Provides Bilingual Assistance for Seniors Seeking Services in July

The Union County Board of County Commissioners invites seniors and their caregivers to come to Union County’s ASK community events in July, and meet in person with professional staff for expert guidance on senior programs and resources. Help with filling out forms is also provided and bilingual staff will be present at all of these events to offer assistance in Spanish.

“Emphasizing the significance of fostering connections between seniors, care givers, and the valuable resources available, we invite them to explore the nearby ASK program, said Commissioner Chairman Sergio Granados. “Our dedicated staff personally extend their support by venturing into libraries and community centers, ensuring in-person assistance at conveniently located spots throughout the County.”

ASK stands for Aging Services Kiosk, a program of the Union County Department of Human Services through the Division on Aging and Disability Resources, serving seniors age 60-plus and their caregivers.

The ASK program provides Union County residents with a friendly, convenient way to find out about helpful programs and services for seniors and caregivers. The program brings professional staff from the Division on Aging to local public libraries and other community centers.

Staff at the ASK events can help seniors and care givers connect with a variety of services including home delivered meals, respite care, home care, adult day care and support services for caregivers. Any Union County senior or care giver can visit any ASK event, regardless of their hometown.

No appointment or pre-registration is needed. The upcoming ASK events in June all include bilingual assistance in Spanish:
