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.
