If you are over the age of 60, disabled or a veteran of the United States Armed Forces, you may be eligible for a variety of services. Many of these service programs are provided by the Morris County Division on Aging, Disabilities and Veterans, State and County Agencies, and through private Foundations and Charities. 

The New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services and the Department of Human Services have established a “one-door” access to services that will help people age in place. In New Jersey, this is called the Aging & Disability Resource Connection (ADRC) and/or Area Agency on Aging (AAA).

September is National Preparedness Month

Since 2004, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the national Ready Campaign have promoted National Preparedness Month (NPM) every September. NPM encourages Americans to take steps to prepare for all types of emergencies and strives to increase the overall number of people, families and communities that engage in preparedness actions.
The most recent data from the Red Cross, though, reveals that despite 8 out 10 Americans feeling unprepared for a catastrophic event, only 1 in 10 has taken the following appropriate preparedness steps:
• Create a family emergency plan.
• Stock an emergency supply and first-aid kit.
• Train in basic first aid.
Remember, you can’t plan when a disaster will occur, but you can plan ahead to be prepared if and when a disaster does strike. This September, take time to learn more about NPM and take the suggested steps to become properly prepared.
