Grand Junction has been selected as the first city to host the Colorado ‘Conversations on Aging Tour’ which is designed to gather information from the public on the issues faced by older residents.

The event is an important part of the state’s Strategic Action Planning Group on Aging’s efforts to develop initiatives and programs to improve the lives of seniors across the state.

The meetings are designed to build on the group’s Initial Strategic Action Plan on Aging for Colorado. The initial research estimates the state’s population over age 65 will increase 68% by 2030.

Planning Group Chair Jim Riesberg says,

Addressing the complexities of Colorado’s rapidly growing aging population requires an ongoing dialogue with community stakeholders. This series is just the beginning of what I hope will be an ongoing conversation with communities around the state to seize on opportunities to develop innovative solutions for our aging population.”

The Grand Junction meeting will be Thursday, August 24 from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. at Two Rivers Convention Center. The meeting is free and open to the public. The Planning Group is extending a special invitation to older adults, caregivers, service providers, elected officials and advocates who work with seniors.

To register for the meeting either RSVP Online, call 2-1-1, or email agingstrategy@state.co.us for additional information.

Other stops on the ‘Conversations on Aging Tour’ are Frisco, Pueblo, Ft. Morgan, and Denver.
