The new Senior Resource Consultant for the Lyons area is Keith Carr, a member of the Boulder County Aging Services Division. He is available to work with Lyons area elders and their families to identify their strengths and goals; examine possible strategies that have been successful for local elders in the past, and build a network of resources to support the choices of each older adult. Seniors may come in to discuss small, single situations, or work with Keith to develop an overall strategy for better living. The services of the Aging Resource Consultant are provided at no charge, and there are no income eligibility requirements.
Previously, Keith had 12 years of experience as a caseworker with the Boulder County Department of Housing and Human Services, where he provided protective services to seniors and at-risk adults throughout Boulder County.
He is hoping to meet as many Lyons seniors as possible in the coming weeks, and invites all community members to stop by his office, before, during, or after lunch. The Lyons Golden Gang holds their lunch program in the same building.
