Vision

The Living and Aging Well in Lone Tree Ad Hoc Committee envisions our city as a senior-friendly community where residents have the opportunity to age with choice, independence and dignity.

Mission

We are committed to creating opportunities for residents to remain independent and active by:

  • Identifying and advocating for issues and concerns
  • Linking with existing social, health, financial and support agencies
  • Providing avenues for social interaction
  • Supporting educational opportunities

The Living and Aging Well in Lone Tree Ad Hoc Committee has been meeting since January, 2012 to explore issues related to the area's aging population. For several years, Douglas County has been one of the fastest growing counties in the nation.  Although the share of the population 65 years or older in the County is just 7 percent, that age group grew by 177 percent between 2000 and 2010.

Douglas County ranks second in the nation in the growth rate of its older population. That has many of us wondering what it means for services, transportation, health care, safety, social well-being and continued quality of life. Dubbed the Living and Aging Well in Lone Tree Ad Hoc Committee, this local grass-roots effort has been supported by City staff. 

Additional Senior Resources

Additional resources for seniors in Douglas County include the following:
  • Network of Care is a website provided by the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG) Area Agency on Aging. This resource is for seniors and their families and caregivers.
  • Neighbor Network is a non-profit volunteer based program that serves Douglas County senior citizens and adults with disabilities.
  • The Douglas County Department of Human Services provides adult and child protection, and assistance with basic living needs.
  • Lone Tree call-n-Ride service.
  • Lone Tree Link (Link on Demand) is a free bus service between Lone Tree locations accessed through the Uber application.
