The Denver Office on Aging serves the older adult population 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.
"Over the next 30 years, people over 65 are projected to more than double and will make up about 17% of our population. As individuals and as community - we must plan for our health, finances, work and mobility. As a City, we must consider policies that promote quality of life and livable communities. We must meet the responsibilities associated with the upcoming demographic changes and ensure that Denver is the best city in which to be and grow older."
- Mayor Michael B. Hancock
