Union County Welcomes Seniors and Caregivers to Visit ‘ASK’ Services Kiosk in July

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

“As the summer weather intensifies, it’s important for us to check in with our older adult community members to ensure they have access to nutritious meals, home care, transportation, or anything else they may need,” said Union County Commissioner Chairwoman Kimberly Palmieri-Mouded. “Our Aging Services Kiosk is a free resource that Union County offers to support our senior community year-round. I encourage seniors and caregivers who have not yet done so, to visit one of our ASK kiosks in July for a free and informative consultation.”

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 July:
