BRICK TOWNSHIP SENIOR SERVICES AND CENTER – Making a positive difference in the lives of our Senior Residents by improving access to health, education, social and supportive services thereby helping them live with dignity and independence:
Our Senior Services Program welcomes all residents age 60 and older to participate in our many programs. We provide information and assistance on many important issues that our seniors face today – Medicare, RX coverage, Medical Transportation, Nutrition, Health Screenings, Home Care, Property Tax. At your request, we will conduct a one on one session with you to determine if you are eligible for government assistance programs and assist with the completion of these applications to help you obtain the help you need.
Our Community Café offers a hot meal Mondays and Wednesdays. If you need transportation the Brick Senior Shuttle takes our seniors shopping, to medical appointments and to the Senior Center.
Referrals under the Caregiver Support Program can be provided to a family member or any unpaid individual who is caring for an elderly adult 60 years of age or older. This may be a spouse, parent, friend or neighbor. If you are helping with food shopping, transportation, preparing meals, housecleaning, managing medication or other tasks, then you are a Caregiver! Contact us for resources available that may assist you in caring for your loved one.
Whether you are interested in socializing or getting fit, learning new things or staying healthy, the Brick Senior Outreach Center has something for everyone!
