Are You 60 or older?

Glenwood Springs, CO Colorado

Are you 60 or older? Do you have a loved one who is? May is Older Americans Month, a great time to honor older adults and bring attention to the issues that affect older adults. By 2030, one in every five Americans will be 65 or older.

Eagle County Government Adult Services is helping older adults live better today and in the future. We offer programs such as: nutrition (Meals on Wheels), case management, adult protection, health screenings, exercise classes, volunteer opportunities and social activities to keep people independent. We have handicapped accessible vans to provide low-cost transportation to lunches, exercise classes and medical appointments.

Come to Valley Pines in Basalt and have a nutritious lunch or a heart-healthy exercise class. We are here to honor you all year round. For more information, call Amy Berens, Mid-Valley Site Coordinator, at (970) 704-2767.

By working together, we can improve the health and well being of our nation’s older adults and pave the way for better health as we age.
