Our mission is to help maintain an individual’s independence and dignity in their home and community.

Elder group The Weld County Area Agency on Aging (AAA), located in the Department of Human Services, receives funding from the Federal Older Americans Act and the Older Coloradoans Fund to provide services to Weld County residents who are 60 and older. 

The Weld County AAA also includes the Long-Term Care Single Entry Point, Aging and Disability Resources for Colorado (ADRC) Program and Adult Protective Services for those ages 18 and older.

What are Area Agencies on Aging?

  • AAAs were established under the Older Americans Act (OAA) in 1973.
  • AAAs respond to the needs of older adults (60+) and their family caregivers in the communities they serve through advocacy, funding, direct service, planning, and education. AAAs work with public and private partners to respond to the unique needs in their communities and make a difference in the lives of older adults across Colorado.
  • AAAs provide services to any person age 60 or older without regard to age, gender identification, religion, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, political believe, or disability.
