The holiday season is a time to remember the importance of helping others. In this month's newsletter, learn more about Region 10 continuing efforts to to help many of those in our community who are in need.



 
As snow begins to accumulate, the risk of injury from falling drastically increases. Aging and Disability Resources for Colorado (ADRC) wants to help mitigate this risk by offering a great volunteer opportunity. The Snow Bash Challenge is a perfect opportunity for for service organizations and caring individuals to help those in need in the Montrose area. Join us for the ADRC kickoff informational dinner (it's free!) and learn more.


Whether you need marketing advice, industry-specific tools for budgeting or inventory management, want to learn more about cloud-based software options, or simply want to know how to choose the right point-of-sale system, Region 10 can help. We offer industry-specific classes in everything from Accounting, Social Media and Facebook marketing to use of Excel Spreadsheets. And because we know that every industry has unique issues and challenges,we are always seeking those with experience in specific fields to serve as mentors through the Region 10 Small Business Resource Center.

Medicare enrollment can be extremely confusing. And many enrollees ignore reviewing their current Medicare plan because of the complexity of the programs and services available. However, you could be missing be spending too much and actually qualify for various cost-saving benefits. Open enrollment for Medicare lasts until December 7th. Learn more about what you can do to make certain that your Medicare plan is working for you, and not the other way around.

Every four years the Area Agency on Aging across Colorado is given the opportunity to provide our state and national authorities with a picture of older adults in our six-county region. Region 10 Community Living Services is wrapping up an 11 stop Community Conversation tour. 

Thank you for your continued support in making our six
-county region one of the best places to live and work. 
 
Sincerely,
 
Michelle Haynes
