The Colorado Gerontological Society has three publications which are designed to help older adults and those working with them. Too often people do not receive services because they are unaware of their availability.
STA-WELL NEWS is a regular newsletter distributed to more than 8,000 seniors in Colorado and particularly the metropolitan area. It features current policy changes, health articles and information regarding benefits available to the senior population.
Benefits for Seniors is a sourcebook for practitioners which contain information on eligibility, application procedures and income and resource guidelines on government benefit programs.
Our Senior Resource Guidebook provides information regarding community resources, consumer checklists, guidelines for advance directives, and features a detailed document locator to encourage a detailed record of important documents.
The Benefits for Seniors publication is a Sourcebook for Eldercare Practitioners. Written for a professional audience with frequent interactions with major government programs, the Sourcebook is an extensive guide to many of the programs, subsidies, and services commonly used by Colorado seniors including Old Age Pension, Medicaid, Medicare, Food Stamps and more. It features explanations of the most common and complex programs, contains benefit amounts, eligibility requirements, application methods, and many forms.
Perhaps most useful is the Tips for Practitioners, which lists some of the tips and tricks for each program that other aging professionals have perfected to maximize your effectiveness and the range of resources available to you.
Copies of this incredibly useful book can be purchased for $105 ($95 for each additional copy on the same order and address). CGS organizational members receive a $10 discount or $95 for the first copy, and $85 for each additional copy. NOTE: The hard copy Sourcebook is currently on back order and is not available for purchase. Check back in Spring 2012 for next year's edition.

The 2012-2013 edition of the Senior Resource Guidebook is now available to seniors and their families who need assistance with health care problems. Like the aging process itself, the need for support services evolves according to one's own time frame. Whether a person wishes to remain at home or requires permanent residential care - and regardless of finances; it is likely that options exist which may meet individual requirements. Often families find themselves struggling with making decisions about placing a loved one in a nursing home or assisted living without much information. Important questions should be asked as someone is placed in a nursing home or an assisted living. Home care can be an even more difficult decision sometimes. Note: Although every effort is made to maintain current information, our data should be used as a preliminary tool and confirmed by contacting the individual facility.
A comprehensive list of all facilities can also be found in our Senior Resource Guidebook. You may download an order form to purchase by mail, order online or by calling 303.333.3482. More information on advertising in the Senior Resource Guidebook is available below.
