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 for a variety of situations; from caregiver support to Part D Medicare Counseling. Our office staff of fully trained options counselors are able to meet with you to determine what resources are available to your and 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 includes up to date information on local events, services, health and safety tidbits, and more.
