Until further notice, regional Conversations on Aging are being postponed as we adhere to the direction from Governor Polis and our public health officials. Ensuring the safety of older Coloradans is of primary importance and convening meetings around state would run counter to suggested methods to contain and mitigate the impacts of COVID-19. Stay tuned for more details and reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
The Strategic Action Planning Group on Aging is pleased to share the 2019 Strategic Action Plan on Aging. In 2019, work efforts primarily focused on the domains of health and wellness with the intent of providing year-end recommendations for the Office of Saving People Money on Health Care and the General Assembly. You will also find recommendations related to transit/paratransit and workforce issues related to a growing aging population.
Colorado is one of the healthiest state's in the nation and a wonderful place for older adults to engage in encore careers and various forms of value-driven engagement. Current, and future, generations of older Coloradans will continue to provide economic, social, and civic value to our communities for decades to come. At the same time, this dynamic demographic shift requires an assessment of how our state, communities, and businesses address a multitude of issues associated with later life. Take a look!
