11th Annual Northwest Denver Senior Resource Day
Denver City Councilwoman Susan Shepherd representing Council District 1 announced today that she will host the 11th annual Senior Resource Day on Friday, October 3, 2014. “Denver and our region continue to experience population growth among persons over 60 years of age and because of that, it continues to be vital that the myriad of needs, services and opportunities designed for seniors in Denver be organized and made available in a single day event,” says Councilwoman Shepherd. “The focus will be to have one-on-one time with their elected officials who will be available to answer specific questions raised by our seniors.”
The event is scheduled on Friday, October 3, 2014 from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Police Protective Association, 2105 Decatur Street. The event will include over 40 senior services providers dealing with topics on personal health and safety, identity theft and fraud, social security benefits and programs for homeowners throughout the district. Registrants will enjoy a free buffet lunch, and entertainment will be provided by Schmitt Music.
In continuing with this tradition, Councilwoman Shepherd’s Office is again fortunate to have the assistance of Sister Georgeann Quinlan, B.V.M., a long time Denver seniors’ resource advocate and service provider. Sister Georgeann says, “This resource day is a great opportunity for the seniors of Northwest Denver to find out what services are available to them. Many of these 40 resources are FREE SERVICES which seniors may not even know about! What a deal: Free lunch, affordable transportation, and a chance to talk with senior resource providers and elected officials!”
Other programs and services include Denver Human Services, transportation, education and referral, adaptive equipment, homeowner assistance, and many others.
