UNION COUNTY -- Residents seeking information about services for seniors age 60+ can visit Union County’s Aging Services Kiosk (ASK) program in at the Fanwood Memorial Library on Jan. 18 from 10:00 to 12:00 Noon. Staff from the Union County Department of Human Services Division on Aging and Disability Resource Connection will answer questions and offer guidance.

“The goal of ASK is to help seniors and their caregivers access programs and services available to them, by conducting outreach events in their communities,” said Freeholder Chairman Bruce Bergen. 

Staff from the Union County Division on Aging and Disability Resource Connection (ADRC) travel throughout the County, providing information about senior services including home-delivered meals, respite care, home care, adult day care and support services for caregivers. Assistance with completing applications and forms is also available at ASK events.
