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.
