About Us

The Larimer County Office on Aging, which is located in the Department of Human Services, is the Area Agency on Aging (AAA) for Larimer County. As one of sixteen AAA's in Colorado, the Office on Aging receives funding from the Federal Older Americans Act and the Older Coloradans Fund to provide services to Larimer County residents who are 60 and older, and to serve as the lead agency for planning and coordinating those services. Included in the Office on Aging service area are the communities of Berthoud, Estes Park, Fort Collins, LaPorte, Loveland and Wellington, as well as the rural areas of the county.

Area Agencies on Aging (AAA), as mandated under the Older American's Act, play a unique role to not only fund community partners and provide direct services but to innovate, advocate, and lead our community to meet the growing needs of the population. AAA's need to be visible, innovative, collaborative, and responsive to community needs.

The Office on Aging provides funding to agencies that provide services for seniors in Larimer County, including congregate meals, transportation, legal assistance, caregiver support and many more. These agencies are referred to as our funded community partners. In addition, the Office on Aging staff provides direct services and programs to older adults.

Services available through the Office on Aging include:

Four-Year Plan

Every four years, every Area Agency on Aging (AAA) in Colorado is required to develop and submit a plan to the State Unit on Aging.  This plan is based on the needs of people 60 and over in their communities.  See the  Larimer County Office on Aging Four Year Plan 2020-2023
