Union County’s Aging Services Kiosk (ASK) to Visit Five Local Libraries in April

The Union County Board of County Commissioners invites seniors and their caregivers to visit their local ‘ASK’ services kiosk in April. These services provide an opportunity for attendees to meet experienced professionals who offer expert guidance on senior programs and resources and assistance with form completion. Bilingual staff will be present at several events to offer support in Spanish.

“The ‘ASK’ Program has become increasingly popular in our community for its ability to provide customized support to seniors in a friendly and convenient way. Our knowledgeable staff connects seniors and caregivers to valuable resources and services, including home-delivered meals, home care, adult day care, and many others,” said Commissioner Chairwoman Kimberly Palmieri-Mouded. “We encourage you to visit your local library and explore the benefits this service can offer you or your loved ones.”

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 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 April:
