The 2018-2019 edition of the Colorado Senior Resource Guidebook is now available to order for seniors and their families looking for aging resources. 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.
The Guidebook contains essential information for seniors, including information about Medicare, Medicaid, long term care insurance, prescription drug coverage, veterans benefits, and more. Of particular use, the Guidebook provides comparison listings of Colorado senior housing options (Independent Living, Retirement Communities, Assisted Living Facilities and Nursing Care Residences) and help in the home (Adult Day Care, Home Care and Hospice). These listings include addresses and phone numbers, rates, services offered, and additional specific information such as Medicare Star Quality ratings for Nursing Care Facilities and service areas for Home Care.
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.
You may download an order form to purchase by mail, order your personal copy online or by calling 303.333.3482, or visit your local public library. The Guidebook is free of charge, though if you request a personal copy from The Society, shipping and handling will apply. Single copies or bundles of fifteen are available, with shipping discounts for the bundles.
