The Northwest Colorado Council of Governments and the Alpine Area Agency on Aging commissioned a senior services gap analysis to provide an in-depth understanding of the unmet needs for seniors services in the region. We are eager for policymakers, providers, community partners, and citizens to observe the data in the report and be spurred to action.

    An estimated 100,000 older adults will participate in local fitness activities throughout the country as part of the 24th annual National Sen-ior Health & Fitness Day (NSHFD), the nation’s largest health promotion event for older adults. “With Movement…There’s Improvement” is the 2017 national event theme.

    Organized as a public/private good health partnership by the Mature Market Resource Center (MMRC), Senior Health & Fitness Day will offer fitness activities for older adults at more than 1,000 locations including hospitals, park and recreation departments, senior centers, health clubs, retirement communities, houses of worship, health departments and other community locations. The event is always held on the last Wednesday in May as part of Older Americans Month activities.

    We will host different fitness and wellness activities from 10:00 am—2:00 pm. Why not try out something new this year? We will have pre-views of different fitness activities, blood pressure checks, nutrition in-formation and much more. You will want to attend for the giveaways and enter into the drawing.
