Somerset County senior centers offer a wide range of experiences designed for lifelong enrichment in a social and uplifting atmosphere, intended to positively impact overall health. Many of these programs are funded, in part, through the Older Americans Act.

Help the Office on Aging and Disability Services improve existing services by taking a Needs Assessment Survey (https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CB68ZG7). The purpose of this survey is to get the opinions of residents on what services are needed to ensure quality of life for older adults. We will use this information to guide decisions about the provision of community-based senior services in Somerset County.

For more information or to register, contact Senior Center Manager Kristen Grieco at (908) 204-3435.
