Aging Well Initiative

Overview 

Like other communities in Colorado, the fastest population growth in the Rural Resort Region (including Pitkin, Garfield, and Eagle Counties) will be among residents older than 60, with this population’s numbers projected to quadruple between 2010 and 2035. As a result, Eagle County Public Health (ECPH) identified Independently Aging in Place as a top community health priority. Beginning in 2014, ECPH and community partners came together to work on the Aging Well Initiative, an effort to realize and improve systems which allow Eagle County older adults to independently age in place.

Our initial plan was written in 2017 and we are proud to have made big progress on the goals and objectives.  Please check out the progress of the current plan here.  For more information on the Initiative's history, structure, and progress, click here to view the 2017 Eagle County Aging Well Plan.

Due to the success of the current plan, we are continuing our work in 2021 and beyond. We are currently working on "refresh" of our current plan that will be made public in January of 2021.  Stay tuned!
