UNION, NJ - Union residents seeking reliable information about services for adults age 60 and older can come and speak in person with experienced staff from the Union County Aging and Disability Resource Connection, a division of the Department of Human Services at the Union Public Library on Tuesday, July 30.

“Our goal is to help senior residents access the resources they need to stay connected with their communities,” said Freeholder Chair Bette Jane Kowalski. “The ASK program helps seniors, their families, and their caregivers get expert guidance in person, in a comfortable setting close to home.”

Guidance offered through the ASK program includes home delivered meals, respite care, home care, adult day care, and support services for caregivers.
