  • Idea Exchange
  • In 2003, one in eight residents in the Denver region was older than 60; within the next two decades, that number is expected to reach one in four.

    Along with the increase in the older adult population comes the demand for age-friendly homes and communities where the physical and social environments are designed to help older adults age in a healthy and active way.

    Join us to learn about several homegrown age-friendly initiatives. Participants will learn about county- and municipal-level age-friendly initiatives, including:

    • comprehensive efforts to integrate aging issues throughout jurisdictional activities and programs
     
    • new and revised ordinances to create adaptive housing units
     
    • efforts to create diverse service programs for older adults and their caregivers.
