I was doing some research and found a Colorado 2-1-1 site that is quite impressive for its list of resources for those in need. Visit 211colorado.communityos.org and in particular check out the Search the 2-1-1 Database. You can search by counties in Colorado and find resources such as Dental Clinics, Rental Assistance, information on Medicaid and more. A few topics seem to have search results that are misclassified however if you are looking for resources for those in need, this website has a lot of helpful resources. If you are not in Colorado and looking for resources for those in need - try the www.211.org call center. You enter your phone number and the system gives you the listing for the local United Way chapter serving that area and website links. And always remember that you can call 2-1-1 and be connected to resources locally. 2-1-1 is a program of United Way - learn more about the organization - www.unitedway.org.

I attended a networking meeting for professionals serving seniors in the Denver area today. Our group was hosted by a company called Accessible Systems located in Englewood, Colorado. This company has the most awesome show room of products designed to help seniors and the disabled age in place. Aside from the products, their expertise in installation and remodeling with class and style is amazing! Check them out. Their website says they specialize in providing mobility solutions in the home to provide greater independence to people of all abilities in the Colorado, Utah, Eastern Kansas, New Mexico, and Wyoming area. Visit their website at www.accessiblemed.com.
