Colorado has the third fastest growing AGING population in the country. By the year 2040, it is estimated 1/4 of our population will be 60+ as a percentage of the total population. The Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG), through a grant from the Rose Community Foundation, has partnered with CBS4 to create Aging Colorado, a resource for aging and living well – from transportation to housing options to caregiver support and more.

The Denver Office on Aging advocates for Denver’s older population by helping local agencies develop policies and programs that will improve the quality of life and accessibility to care and culture for aging residents. Examples include the Denver Snow Angels.
