Area Agency on Aging conference Wednesday in Grand Junction
The Mesa County Area Agency on Aging is hosting a regional conference in Grand Junction on Wednesday.
Speakers will address Social Security and changing demographics for the elderly during the conference at Two Rivers Convention Center.
Organizers also are looking for input from attendees on issues dealing with the elderly that may be addressed by the Colorado Legislature when it reconvenes in January.
Those discussions also are to include whether the state’s homestead exemption will be funded next year, or whether lawmakers will continue to defund it to help it balance the budget.
Registration to attend the conference is required. Attendees can do that by contacting agency director Dave Norman at 970-248-2717.
