Cumberland County Office on Aging Celebrates Older American’s Month

Bridgeton, NJ – Cumberland County Office on Aging and Disabled is hosting an Open House in celebration of Older Americans Month and the 50th Anniversary of the Older Americans Act on Tuesday May 26, 2015.

President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Older Americans Act into Law in July 1965.  Since that time, the Act has provided a nationwide aging services network and funding that helps older adults live with dignity in the communities of their choice for as long as possible.  These services include home-delivered and congregate meals, caregiver support, community based assistance, preventive health services, elder abuse prevention and much more.

Freeholder Liaison to the Office on Aging Carol Musso encouraged the public to visit the Office on Aging & Disabled office at 800 E. Commerce Street in Bridgeton between 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM on Tuesday, May 26, 2015 to meet the faces behind the programs funded by the Older American’s Act.  Please join the staff at the Office on Aging for light refreshments and hear more about the program opportunities available to our Older Americans.  For more information feel free to contact the Office on Aging at 856-453-2220 or 856-453-2221.
