Denver 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 Denver:

Home Repair Services

Address: 3245 Eliot St., Denver, CO 80211
Phone Number: (303) 534-2929

The Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver and the Colorado Visiting Nurse Association partnered to launch an aging in place program called CAPABLE. This program provides critical home repairs for seniors. All adjustments are customized to improve the homeowner’s comfort and mobility. Qualified applicants must be at least 65 years old, have difficulty performing at least one daily living task, own the home and meet the income requirements.

Weatherization Assistance Program

Address: 1600 Broadway, Suite 1960, Denver, CO 80202
Phone Number: (303) 866-2100

The Colorado Energy Office, with the help of the U.S. Department of Energy, offers a free Weatherization Assistance Program to low-income residents. The service provides cost-effective energy efficiency services, such as air sealing and furnace repair, to reduce energy costs. Seniors are eligible for this program if they meet the income requirements or are receiving financial aid from the following:  

  • Aid to the Needy and Disabled (AND)
  • Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LEAP/LIHEAP)
  • Old Age Pension (OAP)
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
  • Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)
  • Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)
  • Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)

Low-Income Energy Assistance Program (LEAP)

Address: 1575 Sherman St., 8th Floor, Denver, CO 80203
Phone Number: (303) 866-5700

The Low-Income Energy Assistance Program (LEAP) is federally funded and helps seniors pay a portion of their winter home heating costs. In addition to helping with the costs, the program assists with equipment repair and replacement of heating tools. Seniors can apply if their income is 60% of the state median income. 

Senior Property Tax Exemption

Address: 201 W. Colfax Ave., Department 406, Denver, CO 80202
Phone Number: (720) 913-4162

Seniors who are 65 or older, have owned their home for at least 10 years and live in the home as their primary residence are eligible for the Senior Tax Exemption. Once they are approved, the exemption will stay in effect for successive years as long as the property ownership doesn’t change.

Meals on Wheels

Address: 2660 Larimer Street, Denver, CO 80205
Phone Number: (303) 297-0408

Meals on Wheels provides home delivery services for seniors who may be homebound. Each meal includes an entrée and complimentary items such as vegetables, fruits and milk. The program ensures that each meal has at least one-third of the recommended daily nutrients needed for older adults and is low in fat and cholesterol. Applicants must be over 60 years of age.

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 – often times 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.


Guidelines for Talking About In-Home Care

If you’ve determined that your loved one needs the assistance of a care provider in their home, it may be time for a difficult conversation. Handled correctly, however, this process can bring a family together and ensure that everyone’s concerns are addressed. Use this PDF as a starting point to help the conversation stay as positive and productive as possible.
