Assisting older relatives

The holidays are a time when families gather, and as a result, often a time when people realize that aging friends and relatives may be struggling with daily activities. If you visited an older loved one during the holiday season and have questions about services that may be available to assist them, we can help. Contact DRCOG's Area Agency on Aging for information on caregiving, transportation, home health and more in the eight-county region we serve.

DRCOG Area Agency on Aging honored for achievements

DRCOG's Area Agency on Aging was recently recognized by two local organizations for outstanding achievements. On Monday, Dec. 4, the Colorado Business Roundtable presented DRCOG with one of its Champions in Industry awards for taking "an innovative lead in addressing the growing trend of older adults who do not have access to basic living needs." The award recognizes the effort undertaken by DRCOG as a result of the grant awarded in 2017 by the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare to help bridge the gap between medical services and community-based services.

Of those, more than 2,000 took at least one trip during the month of October using a method other than driving alone, and 1,899 made the goal of at least one day per week.
