BEACON Senior News - Western Colorado

Your FREE guide to aging well available now

Dec 22, 2022 03:02PM ● By Cloie Sandlin

Happy New Year from the BEACON! To help you start the year off right, we’ve come out with our 2023 BEACON Guide, your guide to aging well in Western Colorado. 

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

From finding leisure activities to planning your retirement, and from home health care to moving to an assisted living facility, The BEACON Guide helps you navigate the continuum of care in Mesa, Montrose and Delta counties. The guide also includes listings for clubs, genealogy resources, medical providers, pet shelters, support groups, volunteer opportunities and more. 

We publish two editions of the guide: one for Mesa County and another for Montrose & Delta counties. Though geared towards seniors, many households keep The BEACON Guide on hand throughout the year. 

As our community grows, so does the guide. New resources are added each year. We take great care in making sure that every listing is accurate and up to date by personally calling and verifying them year after year.
