Mayor Vergano is proud to announce the grand opening of the Wayne for All Ages Resource Center.
The Resource Center is part of Wayne Township’s age-friendly initiative. It is a collaborative effort among committed organizations and dedicated volunteers from our community. Grant funds from Chilton Medical Center will help operate the Resource Center. Task force members will share their expertise to facilitate various programs, including Alzheimer’s support groups, FREE legal services for qualifying residents, healthcare navigation services, blood pressure screenings, poetry classes, and Qigong classes, to name a few—pre-registration required for all programs and services.
The Wayne Health Department’s Senior and Social Services Director, Rosemary Acampora, oversees the Wayne for All Ages initiative and the task force. Task force members include the Wayne Health Department, Wayne’s Parks and Recreation Department, the Wayne Public Library, Wayne Counseling Center including Women In Transition, Chilton Medical Center, St. Joseph’s Wayne, Christian Health’s Home Care Options, Northeast NJ Legal Services, Inserra Supermarkets ShopRite of Wayne, William Paterson University/Nursing Department, Caldwell University Nursing Department, and other community stakeholders.
The Mission of Wayne for All Ages is to improve access to services, address concerns identified in our age-friendly survey, and collaborate with community stakeholders to create a more age-friendly Wayne.
