Primary Responsibilities

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 Gloucester County's older adults over the age of 60. The Division focuses especially on seniors who are vulnerable or frail and in greatest social and economic need.

Gloucester County's Aging & Disability Resource Connection (ADRC)

As the lead agency for Gloucester County's Aging and Disability Resource Connection (ADRC), the Division assists elderly residents, adults with physical disabilities, and their caregivers access the complex, long-term care, community-based, health and human services programs available to them.

Mission

Our mission is to enhance the quality of life, improve the level of care, and to protect and preserve the human dignity of elderly persons who reside in Gloucester County. We promote, support, and protect well- being and encourage informed choices that enhance the quality of life for seniors and allow them to live in the community for as long as possible.
