Union County residents seeking information about services for senior adults age 60 and up can visit the Aging Service Kiosk (ASK) program at five public libraries in July to speak with staff from the county’s Department of Human Services, Division on Aging.
“This person-to-person service is designed to help seniors access resources that can help them live independently and with dignity in their neighborhoods,” said Freeholder Chairman Sergio Granados. “By bringing our staff into local communities, we also hope to reach seniors in a relaxed environment where they feel comfortable.”
Staff will be present at public libraries in Mountainside, Linden, Clark, Fanwood and Union.
Any Union County resident, caregiver or family member can visit any of the ASK locations.
Through the ASK program, staff from the Union County Division on Aging and Disability Resource Connection travel throughout Union County providing information about home delivered meals, respite care, home care, adult day care support services for caregivers and more.
Assistance with completing applications and forms is also provided.
