The Colorado State Plan on Aging, for Federal Fiscal Years 2012 - 2015 reflects Colorado's plan for responding to the needs of Colorado's older population and to the changes in the service delivery systems needed to address these needs.
The Status of Older Adults in Colorado is a summary of the key finding of the Strengths and Needs Assessment of Older Adults in the State of Colorado. This report provides the concerns and strengths of older adults in the areas of housing, finances, safety, nutrition, mental health, well-being, health, social and civic engagement, transportation, assistance with everyday activities and caregiver support. Each Area Agency on Aging (AAA) region received a summary report specific to their region.
The Strengths and Needs Assessment of Older Adults in the State of Colorado was a 20-minute telephone survey of 8,903 older adults developed in collaboration with the Denver Regional Council of Governments, Colorado Division of Aging and Adult Services, and Boulder County Aging Services. The report will enable the state of Colorado, local governments, and other policymakers to understand more accurately and predict the services and resources needed to serve the increasing aging population. The objectives of the report were to: identify the strengths and articulate the needs of older adults in Colorado; develop estimates of and projections for the cost of meeting the needs; and provide useful, timely and important qualitative and quantitative information for planning, resources development and advocacy efforts.
