Home: About Leading Age Colorado
Who We Are...
Established in 1968, LeadingAge Colorado (formerly CAHSA) is the state's largest and oldest nonprofit organization representing providers of senior housing and aging services to Colorado's elderly. More than 200 member organizations belong to LeadingAge Colorado, including assisted living residences, nursing homes, retirement communities, independent living, HUD housing, adult day programs and other community-based services.
LeadingAge Colorado advocates public policy initiatives that support individual rights, quality care, equitable access and reimbursement for seniors. Our national partner, LeadingAge, is an association of 6,000 not for profit organizations dedicated to expanding the world of possibilities for aging. Together, we advance policies, promote practices and conduct research that supports, enables and empowers people to live fully as they age. LeadingAge Colorado is also the state affiliate for two other national organizations: the Assisted Living Federation of America (ALFA), and the National Adult Day Services Association (NADSA).
What We Do...
LeadingAge Colorado is committed to providing our membership with the techniques, data, information and education necessary to assist them in adapting and modifying their programs in response to ongoing changes in senior living and long-term care. In an effort to assist members in growth and development as a result of industry challenges, members are provided with educational programming on a wide range of relevant topics, valuable information about the latest trends and events, networking opportunities, and representation within the legislative processes at both the national and local levels. Additionally, CAHSA seeks opportunities for informing the general public about the issues and concerns of our members.
LeadingAge Colorado serves its members and advances a continuum of care choices through advocacy, education and knowledge exchange.
The LeadingAge Colorado community inspires and empowers members to serve with integrity, excellence and passion.
