As The Area Agency on Aging for Region 1; we provide leadership in assessing the strengths and needs of older adults in the region; we facilitate strategic planning and implementation; fund and provide services to benefit older adults over 60 years of age and their caregivers, regardless of age.

We also provide assistance to Medicare beneficiaries and residents of any age who live in a long-term care facility.
In addition, we provide information, referral, and options counseling to anyone 18 or older with a disability as well as to older adults through the Aging and Disability Resource for Colorado program.
