Serving Seniors in Teller County since 1996!

Our mission is to provide services to Teller County senior citizens to enable them to live full, active, and independent Lives.

Unlike any other organization in Teller County, we offer free transportation and respite care to those aged sixty and over.  Over the last 20 years we have also assisted seniors by providing shelf stable meals to those that are homebound, help with utility payments, and home safety repairs --- all these services are provided without a fee as most of our clients are low income.  We request a donation but no one is ever denied any service. 

The senior population is growing.  The first of the baby boomer generation turned 65 in 2011 and they make up 25% of the total US population.  We are proud that the services we provide helps our senior population remain in their homes.  By providing nutritious meals, transportation to both medical appointments and social activities, and offering in-home respite care our seniors are able to live full and independent lives.

Each year hundreds of thousands of older persons are abused, neglected, and exploited. Many victims are people who are older, frail, and vulnerable and cannot help themselves and depend on others to meet their most basic needs. Abusers of older adults are both women and men, and may be family members, friends, or “trusted others.” Read more.

 

AARP Foundation ElderWatch Colorado is a program with the Colorado attorney general and AARP Foundation whose mission is to ensure that no older adults are left to suffer, alone and in silence, at the hands of those who exploit them. The program fights the financial exploitation of older Coloradans through education and outreach, data collection, and the providing of assistance.  Learn more.
