Senior Resources

Purpose:
The purpose of the Senior Health and Resources Program is to provide community outreach and education, preventative health, adult protection and advocacy services to seniors, at risk adults and their families so they can be more independent, healthy and connected to their community.


Later adulthood can be filled with many tasks, such as retirement, social and civic responsibilities, along with biological, psychological and social changes. Aging can also come with hardships such as illness, caring for love ones and loss. Fortunately in our community such challenges do not have to be faced alone. Gunnison County Senior Resource Office offers numerous resources and services for a variety of situations from caregiver support to Part D Medicare Counseling. Our office has a staff of fully trained options counselors who are able to meet with you to determine what resources are available to you or your loved ones. For more information, call us at 970-642-7300.

Gunnison County also writes "The Senior Scoop", regularly published in the Gunnison Country Shopper. The Scoop incudes up to date information on local events, services, health and safety tidbits and more.
