Office on Aging

 

 

Denver Office on Aging Mission– This office serves the older adult population (55+) of Denver by advocating for their rights and concerns, developing collaborative strategies to increase community awareness of older adult challenges, and enhancing communication by providing information, resources and referrals to Denver area older adults.

 

What We Do…
Empower, Enhance current services and Engage older adults in making the City and County of Denver a “World Class” City for Older Adults.

 

How…
Through collaborative strategies, partnerships, leadership, advocacy and communication among multiple sectors (Government, Nonprofit Organizations and Businesses).

 

Why…
The City and County of Denver, along with the country, is facing the opportunity of the growing number of older adults in the community, especially as the Boomers continue to live, work and play in the city.  The Denver Office on Aging is motivated by the fact that older adults are assets to the community and should be valued and celebrated for their contributions.  They should be taken care of well and engaged in the continued growth of this great city.

The City and County of Denver – An Age Friendly Community through the World Health Organization and AARP
In September of 2014, Mayor Michael B. Hancock made the City and County of Denver a part of an important of network of communities across the country.  He signed on to be an Age Friendly Community through the World Health Organization and AARP.  This means the City is engaged in a planning process to ensure older adults are considered as plans and policy for the future are made.  The Age Matters Report (make these words the link to the report attached) serves as this plan initiated on April 1st, 2015.  For more information on progress on this initiative please check out the Age Matters Initiative page.
