Hosted by county commissioners from Eagle, Pitkin and Garfield counties, the very full, day-long agenda featured presentations on topics ranging from “10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s and Dementia,” “Estate Planning 101” and “Top Scams Targeting Older Coloradans.” More than two dozen exhibitors at the resource fair shared information on services and how seniors should best advocate for themselves.
