UNION, NJ – Union has instituted a town-wide Senior Citizen Wellness Check in light of the COVID-19

Throughout the week, Township of Union personnel will place phone calls to Union residents age 62 or older. If the resident is not home, a message will be left and a follow-up call will be made.

“This is a vital service that will assist our older residents and put them in touch with the necessary resources such as Meals on Wheels, senior services and our CodeRED notification system,” said Senior Citizen Commissioner Suzette Cavadas. “As the situation evolves and the COVID-19 virus spreads, we will continue to call and stay in touch with our most needy residents.”
