Aurora Home Care Resources 

Home care services are only one of the pieces needed for seniors to gracefully age in place. There are many services and programs that are low-cost or free, that enable seniors to enjoy an independent lifestyle in the comfort of their own home, such as help with home modifications, meal delivery services, and more. Below, we’ve compiled a few of the most helpful resources in Aurora:

Seniors’ Resource Center

Address: 3227 Chase St., Denver, CO 80212
Phone Number: (303) 238-8151

The SRC offers care teams that can visit a client’s home and assist with meal preparation, bathing, errands and maintenance or cleaning services on an infrequent basis. The day center program of this organization specifically gives seniors opportunities to socialize and enjoy recreational activities while in a space that’s safe. It’s also open to elderly people with dementia.

Chore Services and Home Repair of Arapahoe County

The Chore Services Program gives seniors access to homemaker help biweekly for 1.5 hours per session. Volunteer helpers arrive to change linens, clean ovens, clean windows or floors and perform other home cleaning tasks. Elders who apply must be 60 or older and meet income guidelines to be eligible. Chore services for outdoor yard work and major external home cleaning are also offered.

Those making less than $34,840 as a two-person household or $25,760 individually can apply.

Determining Your Loved One’s Need for In-Home Care

Aging can be a difficult process, and loved ones may not always ask for help – oftentimes it’s up to their family to evaluate their need for help around the house. While no two situations are exactly alike, this checklist can help you and your loved ones determine when it’s time to start the search for a home care provider.
