The Seniors' Resource Center is a community partner providing person-focused, coordinated services to enhance independence, dignity and quality of life.
Our vision: The Seniors Resource Center will continue to ensure quality of life through a constellation of services, information, advocacy, and leadership to meet the needs of the community enabling individuals to age in the place they call home.
SRC helps older adults and adults with developmental disabilities maintain their independence with dignity and improved quality of life. To accomplish this, SRC directs its unique, comprehensive and integrated services delivery system to fill gaps in service, create effective and efficient partnerships and collaborations, avoid duplication of services and implement innovative solutions that meet the needs of under-served seniors and communities.
SRC was founded in 1978 through efforts of community groups and individuals committed to having one centralized agency that would be available to provide information and referrals for coordinated services for older adults and their families.
Seniors' Resource Center has earned the distinction of being one of Colorado's largest and most respected charitable organizations serving seniors and their families whose staff and volunteers create innovative, effective, and coordinated care for the particular needs of seniors and persons with disabilities. Over nearly four decades, SRC has grown into a recognized national leader in senior services, serving older adults and their families in Jefferson, Adams, Boulder, Clear Creek, Denver, Gilpin, Park, Arapahoe, Broomfield, and Douglas counties.
SRC coordinates services and referrals using a one-call approach that significantly improves seniors' access to the range of resources they need, and eliminates having to conduct a confusing, protracted search for the services they require. SRC is enhancing and expanding services in order to meet the growing needs of seniors.
The Denver metro area's population of adults age 60+ is projected to more than double by the year 2020, according to the Denver Regional Council of Governments. Additionally, the U.S. Census Bureau estimates that the average life expectancy of a U.S. citizen will increase to 80 years in 2025 from 77 years in 2005. Thus, the 60+ population is not only growing substantially, but they are living longer.
With this rapid growth of the older adult population in the Denver metro area, SRC has significantly expanded over the last 36 years. SRC is a large, highly regarded provider of community-based senior services in the Denver metro area.Over the last several years the need for services has grown dramatically!
"Being at SRC's Adult Day Center really brought my mom back. For that, I'll be forever grateful."
"Your staff person cleaned my yard really well and it was very hot and he never complained. He came back and cleaned my home. He did a beautiful job. It made me feel so good to have a clean yard and clean home."
"Without my Personal Care Provider, I couldn't live at home any more. I wouldn't be able to do anything without Seniors' Resource Center."
"Everyone at SRC was courteous, friendly, and very helpful. They helped me maintain my family and provided a great place for mom to be while I was at work. Can't say enough good things about everyone I had contact with at SRC."
"The Adult Day program gives me a break and a safe environment for mom, so she is not isolated. SRC provides a lot of great services. I could not take care of her full time and do not know what I would do without SRC."
