Senior Resources

Purpose

The purpose of the Senior Health and Resources Program is to provide community outreach and education, preventative health, and adult protection and advocacy services to seniors, at risk adults, and their families with the goal of creating a more independent and healthy community.

Later adulthood can be filled with many tasks such as retirement, social, and civic responsibilities mixed with biological, psychological, and social changes. Aging can also come with hardships such as illness, caring for loved ones, and loss. Fortunately in our community such challenges do not have to be faced alone. The Gunnison County Senior Resource Office offers numerous resources and services including Aging and Disability Resources of Colorado, Long Term Medicaid, and Adult Protective Services. Our offices staff is fully trained to assist with caregiver support, Part D Medicare counseling, and in home services. For more information, call us at (970) 642-7300.
