Welcome to Aurora, Colorado








    
Senior Resources
   

Active senior man
Over the next 30 years, as the "Baby Boomers" begin to reach retirement, it is projected the population of Aurora will see a significant growth in the need for senior services and resources. Here in Aurora, our seniors are valued for their knowledge, experience, service and dedication to their community.

The Aurora City Council considers policies that promote quality of life and livable communities. As the upcoming demographic changes begin, the city choses to take the responsibility in responding to the needs of our aging community. Aurora strives to enhance the quality of life for the aging population by increasing community awareness of services and programs available to older adults.

Our goal is to make Aurora the best city in which to be and grow older.
