The Boulder County Senior Living Tour is happening on 8-23-14

Saturday, August 23, 2014 is an interesting event! 

The Boulder County Senior Living Tour is happening! I think these "senior housing tours" are great ways to share information about local senior housing. This event covers 8 retirement communities in the Boulder County area including: Sunrise at Boulder, The Villas at the Atrium, Wynwood at Ridge Point, Golden West Senior Living, Meridian Boulder, Juniper Village, Balfour Senior Living and Sunrise at Flatirons.

Attended the Denver & Boulder Senior Law Days & had a great time!

For those of you that missed these events, put them on your calendar for next year. 

For 2014 the Colorado Bar Association worked together with many, many volunteers and hosted events in 10 locations in Colorado from the Grand Junction and the Western Slope to Pueblo County, El Paso County and Arapahoe/Douglas Counties and Boulder, Denver, Jefferson, Larimer, Chaffee and N.W. Colorado. Kudos to all of the volunteers which included both non-profits, for-profits and community volunteers of all ages and of course, the Colorado Bar Association staff.

As a basic explanation of Colorado Senior Law Days, these event are educational seminars combined with resource fairs about services important to seniors, boomers, adult children and professionals serving seniors. 

Each law day location interviews possible local presenters and selects a variety of topics and presenters. Some of the presentation topics at this years' events ranged from estate planning, understanding Medicaid Long-Term care, fraud prevention, State Legislature updates, Medicare resources, probate, advanced directives, family mediation, financial planning, senior housing options, aging in place and much more.

This year the various law day groups also worked hard to get some impressive keynote speakers. Here are a few of the 2014 keynote speakers:
Denver - Denver District Attorney, Mitch Morrissey
Boulder - Colorado Supreme Court Justice, Nancy E. Rice

Grand Junction - Chief District Court Judge, David A. Bottger
Pueblo - Supreme Court Justice, Gregory Hobbs

At the Boulder Senior Law Day, Seniors Resource Guide was invited to share their Medicare Basics Video Series. This was a "drop-in" presentation. We had an excellent response to the videos. We were also fortunate to have Medicare insurance specialists drop in to answer questions.
