SOMERVILLE, NJ – All Somerset County-operated senior wellness centers will continue to adhere to public health guidelines for the safety of its clients and caregivers by remaining temporarily closed until Aug. 31. County staff is diligently working to provide food deliveries and remote services.

Currently, senior wellness centers are operating under a “new normal” with activities and programs available remotely for anyone age 60 and above. Although the senior centers are closed for onsite activities, clients can participate in many of their favorite classes via Zoom in the comfort of their own home.

Meals on Wheels will continue to deliver hot and/or frozen meals, five days a week according to each client’s meal-delivery schedule.
