Fort Collins 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 Fort Collins:

Larimer County Office on Aging Services

Address: 1501 Blue Spruce, Fort Collins, CO 80524
Phone Number: (970) 498-7750

The Larimer County Office on Aging Services is the Area Agency on Aging for the region. It serves area seniors age 60 and older by coordinating the services they need to live safely and independently at home. Through the Office on Aging, seniors can get in-home services, help with chores, counseling for care options and support for family caregivers. Seniors can also get help applying for Medicare or Medicaid services through the office.

Colorado Low-Income Energy Assistance Program

Address: 1575 Sherman Street, 8th Floor, Denver, CO 80203
Phone Number: (866) 432-8435

LEAP is a program that helps seniors and other low-income households in Colorado afford their utility bills in the winter months from November through April. Seniors can qualify for this if they make up to 60% of Colorado’s median income level. LEAP can also offer help with repairing a home’s primary heating system to ensure seniors stay safe when the winter weather hits Fort Collins.

Income-Qualified Assistance Program

Address: 222 Laporte Avenue, Fort Collins, CO 80524
Phone Number: (970) 212-2900

Seniors who qualify for LEAP during the previous season and who use Fort Collins Utilities as a provider for electric, water or wastewater may be able to receive a reduced rate on their utilities through the Income-Qualified Assistance Program. This reduces the rate for these utilities by 23%. It also provides home efficiency education that can help lessen the amount of energy used in the home, which lowers the cost of utility bills.

Volunteers of America – Handyman Program

Address: 405 Canyon Avenue, Fort Collins, CO 80521
Phone Number: (970) 472-9630

Staying safe at home sometimes requires home modification, and seniors can request help with these modifications through the Handyman Program with Volunteers of America. This non-profit group provides safety repairs and minor home maintenance to seniors living on a fixed budget. The labor for these projects is provided at no cost to the participant as long as they’re able to provide the materials.

Meals on Wheels

Address: 405 Canyon Avenue, Fort Collins, CO 80521
Phone Number: (970) 472-9630

Meals on Wheels is another program from Volunteers of America. This program has volunteers who deliver frozen meals to seniors in Larimer County who are homebound and aged 60 or older. In addition to the tasty meals, which seniors can keep on hand for days when they feel they can’t cook, Meals on Wheels provides a basic wellness check when the volunteer delivers the food.

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.
