2019 Ulster County Senior Survey
Dear Ulster County Senior: As a valued member of our community, Acting Ulster County Executive Adele B. Reiter and the Ulster County Office for the Aging want to hear from you! Our mission is to assist Ulster County seniors to be as independent as possible, for as long as possible. We hope that you will complete this survey to let us know what you feel is important in order to age safely and happily in Ulster County.

By filling out the survey, you will be assisting us in determining what kinds of services are important and necessary in our community to support Ulster County residents as they age.

Please note that at the end of the survey there are some personal questions that will assist us in planning, but we assure you that your information will remain confidential and your identity will remain anonymous.

If you need assistance completing the survey, or would like to request a paper version of the survey, please call our office at 845-340-3456.

Thank you in advance for your participation and contribution!

Sincerely,

Judy Riley
Interim Director
