Public Hearings

The Division of Senior Services’ annual public hearing on the needs of older adults in Bergen County is held annually that focuses on understanding and addressing the unique challenges faced by older adults and caregivers in our community. This event serves as a platform for open dialog among community members, general public, policy makers, and service providers. Through testimonies and personal stories, we aim to gain valuable insights into the needs of older adults and explore potential solutions to improve their quality of life. Public hearing plays a crucial role in shaping policies, programs, and services that cater to the diverse needs of our aging population, ultimately creating a more inclusive and age-friendly environment in Bergen County.
