In partnership with the Office of the Mayor of Colorado Springs, Innovations in Aging Collaborative has launched the Age-Friendly Pikes Peak Initiative. The vision of the Age-Friendly Community Initiative is to ensure that the City of Colorado Springs and El Paso County will be an age-friendly community that is inclusive and accessible, where all residents may live a healthy, active, and engaged life
Innovations in Aging Collaborative is committed to investigating the best ways to address the challenges and opportunities of aging in the Pikes Peak region and sharing that information. We investigate these options through research conducted with the UCCS Aging Center, Summit Economics, and other local and national partners.
Dementia Friendly Colorado Springs
Innovations in Aging Collaborative and its partners from the Best Practices in Dementia group are proud to announce that Colorado Springs is officially a member of the Dementia Friendly America network. As a part of the Age Friendly plan, we will work to create a local community where people living with dementia are supported to enjoy a high quality of life with meaning, purpose, and value.
