UNION COUNTY, NJ - Union County residents in need of services for seniors age 60 and older can get information quickly and conveniently by using ASK, Union County’s new mobile Aging Services Kiosk. ASK launched in May and so far the program has visited 10 public sites, including libraries and community centers. Another six locations have been scheduled for July.

“ASK brings our experienced staff to convenient locations where seniors can come for expert, reliable guidance,” said Union County Freeholder Bette Jane Kowalski, who is a member of the Human Services Advisory Board. “It complements Freeholder Chairman Bruce Bergen’s 2016 Year of the Senior initiative for enhancing programs and services across Union County.”

Caregivers and family members are also welcome to visit any ASK location.
