2020 BEACON Guide: Your guide to aging well

Dec 30, 2019 04:09PM ● By Cloie Sandlin

Happy New Year from the BEACON! To help you start the year right, we’ve included a copy of the 2020 BEACON Guide, our annual publication designed to help you age well in Western Colorado.

The BEACON Guide—a trusted resource directory for area seniors, their families and those who assist them—has only gotten bigger and better. In addition to hundreds of local, state and national resources and hard-to-find phone numbers, the guide also features informative articles to help you with the transitions that you or a loved one may be going through.

From finding leisure activities to planning your retirement, from home health care to moving to an assisted living facility, The 2020 BEACON Guide will help you navigate the continuum of care. The guide also includes listings for clubs, genealogy resources, veterinarians and pet shelters, support groups, volunteer opportunities and more.

As our community grows, so does the guide. Many listings are added each year. We’ve taken great care to make sure that every listing is accurate and up to date. Every listed phone number is called and personally verified year after year.

Though geared towards seniors, many households keep The BEACON Guide on hand throughout the year.

Our digital version of the 2020 BEACON Guide is more robust than ever.
