Most families experience the need to find services and help for loved ones as they age. This time may be one of deliberate planning or it may be an imminent crisis. The Colorado Gerontological Society has two tools that can help. The first tool is the Help Me Find Services guide to assist you in understanding the presenting circumstances and decide on a loved one’s needs, as well as begin to think about what type of care might be needed. The second tool is the Housing and Home Care Locator, which is a searchable database in which you can search for retirement living, assisted living, nursing home care, home care, adult day programs and hospice programs.

The database can return search results by location, price, payment type, services, and more. Results of recent surveys by the Colorado Department of Public Health and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services are also available to help with decisions about quality of care and compliance with federal and state regulations
