Area Agency on Aging

Covid-19 Health Alert

Out of concern for the safety of our older adult population, we and our contractors will be taking extra precautions while providing services. If you are a client at the Area Agency on Aging and have concerns or questions about COVID-19, please send us an email or contact us at (303) 480-6700.

With more than 40 years' experience as the designated Area Agency on Aging (AAA) for the eight-county region, the Denver Regional Council of Government plans and provides comprehensive services to address the needs of the region's population of older adults and people living with disabilities. We are responsible for the establishment of a comprehensive, coordinated system of community-based supportive and nutrition services for the Denver region's older adults.

As required by the OAA, the Denver region's Area Plan on Aging is carried out through programs provided directly by the AAA and through contracts with community-based agencies to provide a continuum of services. The AAA has many options to help older adults 60+, their families, and caregivers remain independent in the community, including information and referral services, case management, transportation, home-delivered meals, senior centers, legal services and more through our network of funded providers.

We are also an Aging and Disability Resource Center for Colorado (ADRC), and provide information and assistance as well as options counseling for both older adults and adults 18+ living with a disability. This program helps streamline access to long-term services and supports in the community.  Options counselors are available to offer personalized education and decision support around local resources for individuals and their caregivers.
