Aging Advocacy and Resources

Many Coloradans are unaware—and truly need to become aware—of the wide variety of community and government organizations focused on the many different opportunities and challenges of aging—many offering access to limited free services. We at AgeWise are working daily to raise the awareness of these various groups who focus on aging Coloradans and their families.

We frequently hear that very sad lament of “I wish I had known about ____sooner” and are working to turn that into a “wow, I am so glad I learned about ____now”.

These Community and Government resources may include organizations such as the Alzheimer’s Association, AARP, and others; and include State, County, and Municipal government agencies and councils which have an aging lens. Examples include the Area Agencies on Aging, State Department of Human Services Office on Aging, our state Medicaid program, Health Care Policy and Finance, County and City Councils on Aging, Public university programs focused on aging, Public Libraries with Aging Services, and so many others.
