Senior Services

The Bergen County Division of Senior Services was established in 1966 under Federal Legislation of the Older Americans Act. The Division of Senior Services is the primary planning, coordinating and funding agency for senior programs and services, promoting the well-being, health and independence of Bergen County’s more than 190,000 older adults. The Division targets especially those vulnerable and in greatest social and economic need.

As the lead agency for the Bergen County’s Aging and Disability Resource Connection (ADRC), the Division helps older adults, individuals with disabilities over the age of 18, and their caregivers, access the complex, long-term care, community-based, health and human services.
