It is the mission of the Ulster County Office for the Aging to assist and empower older adults and their families to live as independently as possible, with dignity and purpose.

Ulster County will strive to reach more older adults and expand upon its current services by bringing them to remote and  underserved areas of the County.  This includes new educational health promotion, service enrollment and Senior advocacy program opportunities so they can stay in, and contribute to, their community.


Dear Ulster County Older Adults!

This is the birthday month of the U.S.! Hope you can celebrate in style! We have a lot to be thankful for.

A few reminders that we have tech teaching classes here on a regular basis in our Senior Hub – however we will be taking a break for July and August – with only 1 class on July 11th. They are taught by very knowledgeable people, so please take advantage of this free service. We also have begun taking tech teaching on the road! So far we have been in Ellenville, and will also visit Wallkill, Saugerties and Pine Hill this summer. If your senior group might need something like this, please let us know! Call 845-340-3456 and ask for tech classes.

A reminder that the Zumba classes have been extended through August 14, with a couple of days off in there (holidays). Our partnership with MVP has afforded many folks with extra exercise and learning opportunities, and we are grateful for our continued partnership with them.

There will be a CFD (Circle of Friends for the Dying) Death Café planned for July 12 at 10 A.M. to 11:30 A.M. in the Senior Hub – a flyer will be ready soon, and please call the office to register or for more information.

We will be holding our annual picnics again at Lippman Park in July and then Robert Post Memorial Park in August.  We often have many vendors who have helpful services to offer and we expect it to be a good time and a great picnic again!

Keep cool this summer folks, as it looks like it’s going to be a hot one – don’t forget HEAP and the services they can provide. Call our office if that’s something you need to explore.

We still offer Tai Chi all around, craft classes, chess club, exercise classes each week at the Hub, and many learning opportunities around the County, along with additional legal seminars, Community Cafés, Medicare counselors, Medicare Savings plan information, and our dietician who can meet with anyone for a consult, among other services.

Keep cool and collected!
