Senior Resources Available in Colorado

July 8, 2013

Letter from Ann Reichhardt, Director of Societal Health and Wellbeing.

As Director of Societal Health and Well-Being for the Fort Collins Shambhala Meditation Center, I recently had the opportunity to participate in the webinar, Resources for Older Adult Patients and Their Caregivers, presented by the Colorado Department of Human Services.

Because the information was so educational and illuminating, I am inspired to share the program with you in a PDF format.

Click on this DROPBOX link to download the PDF and then save it to your computer. This is a large document and required Dropbox to be able to send this to you by email.

This PDF gives an overview of services and resources provided through the Colorado State Unit on Aging for older adults to help them remain in their own homes and communities through a comprehensive, coordinated and cost effective system of Home and Community Based Long Term Care.

Phone numbers for Adult Resources for Care and Help (ARCH) for most of the counties in Colorado are listed toward the end of the program.

Additionally, the address, phone number and web address for the Larimer County Office on Aging (LCOA) has also been provided, as has the contact information for the Colorado Department of Human Services State Unit on Aging.

It’s my wish that this information may be of benefit to you and those you know who are of an age that requires the type of services that are included in this document.

A number of years ago, First Lady, Rosalynn Carter commented that there are four kinds of people–Those who have been caregivers, are currently caregivers, will be caregivers, and those who will need caregivers.
