Somerset County Seeks to Identify Centenarians

Respond by April 17

Freeholder Brian D. Levine, in conjunction with the Office on Aging and Disability Services and the Regency Heritage Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, is looking to identify residents who are, or will be, centenarians in 2015. Responses are requested by Friday, April 17.

“We are asking residents to help the Office on Aging and Disability Services honor Somerset County centenarians,” said Freeholder Levine, human services liaison. “It is our privilege to pay tribute to those who have contributed to and enriched the lives of their communities. We regard these individuals as wonderful role models for future generations.”

Family members or caregivers should complete a recognition form, which can be obtained from the county Office on Aging and Disability Services or by following this link.

Completed forms may be faxed to 908-595-0194 or mailed to the attention of Cynthia Voorhees, Somerset County Office on Aging and Disability Services, P.O. Box 3000, Somerville, NJ 08876. The deadline is Friday, April 17.

A free luncheon to honor Somerset County centenarians will be held at noon on Wednesday, May 20, at the Regency Heritage Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, located at 380 DeMott Lane in Franklin Township. Centenarians may also invite up to three guests. Centenarians and their families are urged to complete the recognition form before the deadline.

The Somerset County Board of Chosen Freeholders participates each year in the nationwide celebration of Older Americans Month.  Established in 1963, Older Americans Month recognizes the contributions of individuals age 60 and above who enrich and strengthen our nation’s communities. 

For more information or to nominate a centenarian, contact Cynthia Voorhees at 908-704-6349 or Voorhees@co.somerset.nj.us.
