JFS Colorado Senior Connections

JFS Colorado Senior Connections is an innovative program that enriches the physical and emotional well-being of older adults by providing wellness, recreational, social, physical, and mental health services, as well as access to outside community resources and agencies. The concept is based on “Naturally Occurring Retirement Communities” or NORCs, where community-based social services can be provided to help older adults age in place. Seniors continue to grow and learn, maintain their independence, and enhance their quality of life by making new friends, and actively participating in their community.

Colorado Senior Connections is the first program of its kind in Colorado and is currently offered in Edgewater and Wheat Ridge. A full-time onsite program manager creates and manages programs and services based on the needs of seniors in the community.
