Union County Invites Seniors and Caregivers to Explore ‘ASK’ Services Kiosk for Expert Guidance and Resources in March

The Union County Board of County Commissioners cordially invites seniors and their caregivers to visit their local “ASK” services kiosk this March. These services provide an opportunity for attendees to meet experienced professionals who offer expert guidance on senior programs and resources, as well as assistance with form completion. Moreover, bilingual staff will be present at several events to offer support in Spanish.

“The ASK services kiosk plays a strong, supportive role in our mission to provide our senior community with the most accurate and reliable information and resources that they can count on,” said Union County Commissioner Chairwoman, Kimberly Palmieri-Mouded. “We urge you to take advantage of this program and visit the Aging Services Kiosk nearest you.”

ASK, short for Aging Services Kiosk, is a program within the Union County Department of Human Services, specifically operated by the Division on Aging. It offers older adults aged 60 and older, along with their caregivers, a friendly and convenient avenue to discover valuable programs and services and speak individually with a Division on Aging professional.

Staff at the ASK kiosks can help older adults and caregivers connect with various services including home-delivered meals, respite care, home care, adult day care, and support services for caregivers. Any Union County senior or caregiver can visit any ASK kiosk, regardless of their hometown.  No appointment or pre-registration is needed. Below are the upcoming ASK events in March:
