Aging Services Kiosk (ASK) at Cranford Library May 23

ASK Schedule

The ASK Kiosk will be on Cranford on Thursday, May 23, from 10 a.m. to noon at the Cranford Public Library, 224 Walnut Avenue, Cranford.

From The County of Union:

The Union County Board of County Commissioners invites seniors and their caregivers to visit their local ‘ASK’ services kiosk this May. These services provide an opportunity for attendees to meet experienced professionals who offer expert guidance on senior programs and resources and assistance with form completion. Bilingual staff will be present at several events to offer support in Spanish.

“Our mission with ASK services remains to connect seniors, caregivers, and families with the valuable resources necessary to maintain their health, safety, and quality of life,” said Commissioner Chairwoman Kimberly Palmieri-Mouded. “If you are an older adult or care for one, visit your local library in May and explore benefits like meal deliveries, home care, assistance with forms, and more.”

ASK, short for Aging Services Kiosk, is a program within the Union County Department of Human Services, specifically operated by the Division on Aging. It offers adults aged 60 and older, along with their caregivers, a friendly and convenient avenue to discover valuable programs and services and speak individually with a Division on Aging professional.

Staff at the ASK kiosks can help older adults and caregivers connect with various services including home-delivered meals, respite care, home care, adult day care, and support services for caregivers. Any Union County senior or caregiver can visit any ASK kiosk, regardless of their hometown. No appointment or pre-registration is needed. Below are the upcoming ASK events in May:
