We are pleased to offer the first-ever consolidated Senior Services Directory – a complete compilation of all the services and programs available to Woodbridge Township Senior residents.
Just over a year ago, we consolidated all of our Senior programs and services and announced the new Department of Senior Services. Under the expert leadership and direction of Director Michele Morgan and her professional and attentive staff, we announced the opening of two new Senior Centers - Maple Tree Senior Center in Avenel and Oak Tree Senior Center in Iselin. Our
Seniors now have six different options for exercise, recreation, entertainment and luncheons. The Department also oversees the Division on Aging that takes care of populations unknown except to them –our frail, elderly and homebound Senior population. These Seniors don’t see any Township employees except their Social Worker but that does not stop them from telling us how happy they are through calls and emails.
Senior Services also includes Senior Transportation – Senior Transportation of Woodbridge (S.T.O.W.) – that provides FREE transportation services to Township Seniors so they can get to medical appointments, shopping and to our six Senior Centers, which opens them up to opportunities that they otherwise would not experience. With the publication of our brand new Senior Services booklet - which is a 100 page directory that highlights every single program and service available to Seniors from Township, County, State and Federal agencies – our Senior residents will know exactly where to turn to get help or assistance from our many available services and programs.
The Senior Services Directory highlights all of our Senior Centers and the special activities in each along with our other resources like recreation facilities and libraries and it provides references and contact information for Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, prescription programs and caregiver referrals. It also contains valuable information about consumer protection, nutritional advice, energy assistance, veterans programs and services and regular Township offerings like the Farmer’s Market, Tooling Around the Township and our Animal Shelter.
