These are among the questions the Lifelong Westfield Advisory Council is asking local senior citizens in a 19-questions survey intended to help the town prioritize its services for senior citizens and their caregivers. The survey is open until Nov. 19.

“Seniors are a valuable part of our community, and this survey will help us enhance our offerings in the future,” said Brad Chananie, co-chair of the advisory group, in a statement.

The town officials are aiming to keep the elderly in Westfield, co-chair Phil Michel said.

“We hope to learn how we can improve the quality of life for seniors and their caregivers so seniors want to stay in Westfield,” Michel stated.

The anonymous survey, which is available on the town's website, takes most people 5 to 10 minutes to fill out, the officials said.

The survey, which is also being distributed in print form to local groups serving senior citizens, may also be printed from the town’s website, where it is accessible in PDF form.

Completed print surveys may be mailed to the Town of Westfield, 425 East Broad St., Westfield, NJ 07090 Attn: Councilman David Contract, Senior Survey.
