Consistent with national trends, residents of Greater Denver are living longer. The number of adults over age 60 and their proportion within the population are expected to increase dramatically in the decades ahead. With extended life spans come greater physical, emotional, social and financial challenges for seniors and those who care for them. Rose Community Foundation believes it is important to support efforts that enable older adults to live independently and maintain a high quality of life for as long as possible. The Foundation's Aging program area places particular emphasis on efforts to address the needs of low- and moderate-income seniors.
The goal of the Aging program area is to promote and enhance services for older adults and their caregivers so that frail and vulnerable seniors in our community may remain safe and independent in their own homes. Caregivers are defined as family members, significant others, neighbors, friends or volunteers. Rose Community Foundation will achieve this goal by supporting programs, services and initiatives that address the priority areas.
