Healthy Aging Programs

The Aging Services division supports seniors in making healthy lifestyle choices and provides wellness resources and counseling services for Boulder County seniors. We also provide educational workshops on issues such as safe medication use, coordinating exercise classes in rural and low to moderate income locales, as well as addressing gaps in services throughout Boulder County.

Exercise Classes

We offer exercise classes for older adults in Allenspark, the Lydia Morgan Apartments in Louisville, and the Villa West Apartments in Lafayette.

Wellness Courses

Throughout the year we offer a variety of wellness courses. Some courses we provide include:

  • Stanford University's Healthier Living: Managing Your Chronic Conditions
  • Safe Medication Education, A Matter of Balance (Address Fall Prevention and Fear of Falling)
  • Emotional Wellness Workshops

Many workshops are taught in both English and Spanish. 

Nutrition Services

Good nutrition is essential for maintaining health, preventing disease, and managing chronic conditions. BCASD funds the Louisville, Lafayette, and Nederland senior meal programs, coordinates the county-wide Nutrition Provider Council, provides nutrition counseling and education, and coordinates Diabetes support groups. We also assist meal providers in menu planning and in creating heart-healthy and diabetic meals.

Nutrition Counseling

We provide nutrition counseling to any older adult over 60 and their caregivers. Nutritionists usually meet clients in their homes, but often meet at senior centers or other places. There is no cost to this service, and donations are always appreciated. For more information or to set up an appointment call 303-678-6115 and leave your contact information.

Nutrition Education

We coordinate and provide nutrition education for older adults, family caregivers, and service providers, such as home care agencies. Our once a month publication, BCASD Nutrition and Health News is distributed through the network of meal providers throughout the county.

Diabetes Support

We have a Certified Diabetes Educator on staff available for consultations. We also host two diabetic support groups for older adults in Lafayette and Louisville.

Council and Association Collaboration

We coordinate a Nutrition Provider Council to address food security among older adults in Boulder County. We are also a member of the Colorado Association of Nutrition Services Directors and the National Association of Nutrition Service Providers.
