Somerset County residents are invited to voice their opinions on the types of programs and services they feel are needed to help older adults stay healthy and live independently.
On June 6, the Somerset County Office on Aging and Disability Services will hold two public forums on its 2013-2015 Area Plan Contract for Services and Programs for Older Adults.
One forum will be held from 9 to 10:30 a.m. at the Somerset County Senior Wellness Center, located at 202 Mount Airy Road in Bernards. A second forum will be held from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Raritan Senior Center, located at 614 First Ave. in Raritan.
During the meetings, representatives from the Office on Aging and Disability Services will review demographic trends and conditions that impact services to this segment of the population.
Somerset County goals and plans for funds that will be provided through the Older Americans Act will also be discussed.
Residents are invited to make comments, ask questions and provide suggestions at the forum. Written comments may be sent to Executive Director Joanne Fetzko, Somerset County Office on Aging and Disability Services, P.O. Box 3000, Somerville, NJ 08876.
