2017 'Yellow Book,' offering info for seniors, available for free at PPACG

       The 2017 “Yellow Book” for seniors is available.
       Formally titled the Senior Information and Assistance Directory, the free 162-page publication offers information on more than 800 services for older adults in El Paso, Teller, and Park counties, a press release states.
       On the Westside, copies can be picked up at the Pikes Peak Area Council of Governments (PPACG) building, 14 S. Chestnut St.
       The Yellow Book is put out by the Area Agency on Aging, with 25,000 copies printed, the release states.
       Funded through the federal Older Americans Act and the State of Colorado, the agency offers its programs through the PPACG, which serves the three counties listed above.
       One of these programs is the Senior Information and Assistance Center, open to the public Monday through Friday in the PPACG building from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The center's goal is “to provide accurate information on the availability of services for older adults and their caregivers, that help older adults achieve their long-term goals of maintaining independence,” according to PPACG website information.
       For more information, call the Senior Information and Assistance Hotline at 471-2096.
