Union County Provides Assistance for Seniors Seeking Services in August

The Union County Board of County Commissioners invites seniors and their caregivers to come to Union County’s ASK community events in August, 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.

“Our Division on Aging, works hard to ensure that Union County residents can effortlessly navigate a vast range of information designed to improve the lives of our seniors,” said Commissioner Chairman Sergio Granados. “With the presence of our knowledgeable staff at local public libraries and community centers, accessing vital information has never been easier.”

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:
