The Seniors Alliance of Platte Canyon welcomes all residents in the Platte Canyon area of Park County, Colorado (Pine Junction to the top of Kenosha Pass), of any age, race, religion, sexual orientation, or any other demographic designation to participate.
Membership is free.
During the month of April, we are pleased to share that there will be a Medicare 101 class each Tuesday between 1p and 2:30p. The presenters, out of Colorado Springs, will provide information and answer questions. They are not Medicare brokers and so these sessions are informational, only. The sessions are tentatively scheduled to be held at the Platte Canyon Fire Station #2. Stay tuned for additional information.
April 18th, between 1p and 3p SAPC is hosting the second Foot and Blood Pressure Clinic of 2023. Reservations are required and space is filling up quickly. Please contact our office for reservations. A flyer with additional information is attached.
We are in the midst of planning a tour and history presentation of Glen Isle on April 16. Reservations are required. Pleas call the office to reserve your spot.
The April 2023 calendar is attached.
The Seniors Alliance of Platte Canyon was formed by area citizens interested in improving services to Seniors in the Platte Canyon area of Park County. We are a volunteer run and staffed organization.
The mission of the Seniors Alliance of Platte Canyon is to connect seniors from Pine Junction to Kenosha Pass through advocacy, education, socialization, and local resources.
We believe all seniors are entitled to a quality of life that sustains their health and well-being.
SAPC is a member of:
Park County Transportation Study Group
Park County Health Assessment Plan
We are currently advocating for SB-031: Colorado has a critical shortage of geriatric-trained healthcare clinicians to care for our most vulnerable older adults. Increase the number of Geriatric -Trained Providers across Colorado.
In the past year, we have provided referrals to seniors looking for medical insurance after retirement, legal counselling, and transportation to medical appointments.
We also advocated on a state and local level for testing and masks for rural Park County.
Last year we successfully advocated for the Widow’s Oil Food Pantry, which had been designated as “non-essential” during the pandemic and cut from a food bank distribution route. The SAPC was able to communicate the need to the provider and food is once again available to the Widow’s Oil food pantry.
