  • Summit on Aging


    When: June 25, 2013 8:30: AM - 4:30 PM

    Where: WaterStone Community Church, 5890 South Alkire Street in Littleton

    Description: The number of people over the age of 60 is expected to double by 2020 and Jefferson County is expected to have the largest number of seniors than any other county in the state. This is going to affect every aspect of our community from government benefits to businesses to human resources, housing, caregiving and beyond. For the past five years, Jefferson County’s Strategic Plan for Aging Well has been exploring this aging population and will be holding the Fourth Annual Jefferson County Summit on Aging on Tuesday, June 25 from 8:30am – 4:30pm at WaterStone Community Church, 5890 South Alkire Street in Littleton.

    This year’s summit is titled “Living on the Edge” and is going to be a call to action and community conversation to address lower-income seniors. Most seniors are concerned about outliving their money and needing to go on government assistance. Come be a part of the conversation and action plan.

    Anyone who serves older citizens or has an interest in Jefferson County’s aging population is encouraged to attend. Join us for conversations on basic needs; caregiving & supportive services; health, mental health, wellness & prevention; housing; social & civic engagement; transportation/local coordinating council; intellectual and developmental disabilities; and gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, and transgender elders. Over two dozen exhibitors will be on hand showcasing resources available to seniors and caretakers.
