About the Area Agency on Aging

As the Area Agency on Aging for Region 3B (Boulder County), we provide leadership in assessing the strengths and needs of older adults in the region; facilitate strategic planning and implementation; fund and provide services to benefit older adults and their family caregivers, and convene community conversations and collaborative efforts. We use a strengths-based philosophy in our service delivery in order to empower older adults and their caregivers to make informed decisions and choices about current needs and long-term care.  Generally speaking our services are for adults 60 and over and their adult 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.
