The Office of Senior Services is the focal point that older adults and their families can turn to for information regarding services and programs.

Our seniors are special in so many ways. In Ocean County we make certain our programs and services – from transportation to nutrition sites – provide this population with the assistance they need to live independently and with dignity.

The Ocean County Office of Senior Services serves as the focal point for services and information. Residents are encouraged to call us for information on available services and programs.

A representative from the Office of Senior Services also is available at the County Connection, the Ocean County government service outlet located at the Ocean County Mall, as well as some of the other Satellite Resource Centers.
