UNION COUNTY, NJ--Union County residents seeking information about services for seniors can visit the traveling “ASK” Aging Services Kiosk program. Five ASK sessions are scheduled for five different locations in January.

The ASK program visits libraries and other public facilities in communities throughout Union County. Each ASK session is staffed by experienced personnel from the Union County Department of Human Services Division on Aging and Disability Resource Connection.

“The ASK program enables residents to speak with an expert and ask questions in person at a convenient location,” Freeholder Bette Jane Kowalski, the Freeholder Board liaison to the Human Services Advisory Board said. “ASK has become an important part of our community outreach efforts, helping to ensure that every senior can connect with the resources and services available to them.”
